like children playing with paper by simply cutting and folding it, the ‘peacock’ chair designed by canadian firm uufie is constructed from a single sheet of DuPon™ Corian® . taking its namesake from the feathered animal, whose billowing tail opens into an expanse of pattern and color, the recliner’s back rest fans open in the same way, propelling in a sweeping curve. a delicate, lace-like motif spreads throughout the framework, yet the design is only optically fragile as its material is made structurally strong through the thermoforming process. the woven-like arrangement casts dramatic shadows onto the surface of the floor. the seating unit is available in three versions, a limited edition in large and smaller sizes, in both color and white. uufie is presenting variations of ‘peacock’ at design miami/ as part of the galleria rossana orlandi collection, and is also currently on exhibit at spazio rossana orlandi, milan.
