french designer patrick norguet has created ‘colander’, his latest chair for the italian furniture manufacturer kristalia. the chair takes its name from the utensil used daily in every kitchen in italy. its technical features include its stackable nature and its suitability for outside use thanks to the small holes that let water run-off. another characteristic that allows for this is its aluminum frame and the moulded polypropylene seat.
