eugeni quitllet presents tube chair for mobles 114 during maison et objet




the ‘tube’ chair for mobles 114 is the ‘best example of the materialization of an idea‘, says its designer eugeni quitllet. presented during maison et objet 2015 as part of the 10/10 exhibition at MODA, the seating piece has a simple tubular frame that is available with or without arms, offering a simple profile that is structurally stable, connected to the seat pan at four points. the ‘tube’ chair is stackable, and is accompanied by a café table.

the chair is designed with a simple tubular structure




through its weightlessness and tubular structure, the catalan creative shakes up modern design vocabulary to create a chair that expresses influences from marcel breuer and robert mallet-stevens. the ‘tube’ chair’s soft shapes reaffirm its industrial origin with lines that project a humanization of the object with a hint of humour. it appears as if it has been created freehand in space — a linear steel tube culminating into a polypropylene seat.eugeni quitllet_tube chair_ mobles 114_designboom_05
