as a synthesis of nature and industry, eugeni quitllet presents a reconsidered version of ‘tabu’ chair for alias at 10/10 moda exhibition in paris, from now until october 3rd, 2015. the product line, originally realized last year, sees the combination of different materials and elements in solid ash wood, all produced using a numeric control system and subsequently joined to one another.

‘the tabu collection’ is presented in a number of aesthetic variations: the version with a methacrylate backrest unites two different mediums, wood — which represents nature — and transparent polymer, which interprets technological research, both brought together to breathe life into the object. the process provides the highest expression of quillet’s approach in designing objects that comprise both refined surfaces and varied materials that interlock with one another.

the ‘tabu’ plastic full backrest is now presented with its a larger backrest in transparent methacrylate or in wood. the collection is entirely FSC® certified — each product is made using wood from forests that are managed in a sustainable and responsible manner, keeping in with strict environmental, social and economic standards.’tabu’ is available in natural ash, in dark or walnut-dyed oak, as well as in the open-pore lacquer in 12 dynamic colors.
