LDPE chair with integrated magazine rack
A rejection of the ‘rational square boxes’ that dominated furniture design before the advent of Charles and Ray Eames and Verner Panton, the Divina armchair uses soft, sculptural contours to mimic the reposing form of the human body. The furniture provide a simple ‘tabletop’ for the portable technology that now seems to follow us everywhere. Just as the spaces inside our homes may have become less defined, as work space often morphs into leisure space, the design of the Divina -fluid in form and function- is intended to accomodate both the passive and active behavior of its users.
