The 19th century Industrial Revolution is the origin of its base: a simple iron shape which behaves as a counterweight and is the best help for an articulated, revolving lamp. The 21st century can be discovered in the modern technology of its shade, the LED source of illumination, a chilly illumination that has a lot of benefits, which feature its reduced usage.T42 ChairThe payment from the Japanese business Yamakawa was for a terrace chair, made in polypropylene, in various shades, which could be piled and with a basic but individual language. The result is a piece that can be easily translated and which has distinguishing characteristics: its geometric spaces, which are not in proportion, project an interesting shadow when light filters through them and keeps users cool down in the heat. A very easy, insusceptible, fresh, washable, simple to manage, comfortable, attractive, well-behaved chair.Wok ChairA chair is a momentary sanctuary, an area where to take a break from fatigue or from the stares of folks. This is why they are so important and this is why there are a lot more chairs compared to individuals. The Wok chair emerged from the concept of a walnut, coconut, with a welcoming area inside shielded by a solid covering which, when cut with a sharp, dry impact, offers up the trick it was withholding: its rich texture, its sombre colours and its ergonomic form. To rest and stand by, to read, to chat or even to think of why there are so many really different chairs.
