emiliano godoy: 'camouflage' armchair and 'flex' coffee table

mexican designer emiliano godoy is presenting his two new designs, ‘camouflage’ armchair and ‘flex’ coffee table for pirwi at design miami 09. the mexican company uses wood boards and veneers from sustainably harvested wood. all pieces are completed non-toxic and biodegradable finishes.

‘camouflage’ armchair

‘camouflage’ is a low armchair made from oriented strand board(OSB). the material is surfaced with a stained-black veneer, and has over-sized lateral panels that partly hide the user. these panels feature a carved camouflage pattern that emphasize the trench-like character of the piece, but at the same time expose the OSB beneath.

the ‘flex’ coffee table has seating and tabletop surfaces made from thin strips of maple plywood. by twisting and bending these thin elements a rigid structure is created, which although strong is both visually and physically lightweight. the new coffee table features a stretched pattern of undulating lines that support a thin glass top. the slender legs of the table are recessed, adding to the visual lightness of the piece.

  • Great design… Curious, does anyone else remember the furniture company “This End Up.” Striking similarity but beautiful none the less.
