luca nichetto for skitsch

‘alle’ chairs front view

‘alle’, a new chair design by luca nichetto for skitsch will be presented during the milan design week 2010. the preview will take place during the opening of the skitsch brompton road shop in london on march 25.

created to serve many uses, ‘alle’ is a revisitation of the tubular chair, but with a structural twist. the chair consists of a tubular metal structure into which a curved plywood seat is fitted. it comes in two versions, a classic four-legged one and another with a four-footed columnar base. the paint on the edges of the seat are gradated, using the same color as the frame. this gives the chairs an appearance of wear reminiscent of wooden chairs in cafés or bars.

    vivian says:
  • Colour is absolutely cool. But I find it very simple. And I also felt it’s not so comfortable for long time sitting. I mean it can be used only for sitting for a while in garden. Otherwise it could be bad for back.
