Colombian designer based in Milan Rodrigo Torres created this simple and beautiful stackable chair for Japanese furniture brand Cassina IXC.
From the designer: “Membrane” is a contract chair, where the synergistic relationship between simplicity, ergonomics and technology is emphasized. The configuration of the shape was inspired by concepts such as harmony, synergy and symbiosis. By joining dissimilar elements and relating them in a delicate and simple way, we leverage their expressive and mechanical characteristics, generating an object where comfort, simplicity and expressiveness are manifested in a sophisticated and comfortable product.
The chair is formed by a soft plastic membrane that takes its shape from the metal structure in which is supported. Thanks to the variety of fabrics and colors that can cover it, Membrane is presented as a versatile chair designed to enter the various environments of daily life, such as working, educational or domestic.
