kabiljo inc.: fat + let them sit cake

‘let them sit cake’

for milan design week 2011, viennese brand kabiljo inc. present ‘fat’ and ‘let them sit cake’, two collections of soft seating at superstudio piú.

the pieces draw on the times of princess marie antoinette, reflecting the finest viennese food traditions of ham and delectable pastries. the furniture pieces stand for abundance, growth, joy, prosperity, optimism and sweetness in our times of uncertainty and economic crisis.

‘let them sit cake’ consists of stacked bags of wheat, topped off with oozing ‘chocolate icing’ which form the ‘cushion’ of the seating object.

‘fat’ resembles a butcher’s hanging meat. hung from the ceiling by a meat hook, the chair is a soft, plush, pink resting area.
