‘Diversity’, that’s what.
Spanish designer Nacho Carbonell has unveiled his latest series which features 20 prototype combined chair and table forms, each with a distinct surface treatment.
One is coated in ‘hair filaments’ that can be combed and groomed; another in shards of broken glass from used wine bottles; and, yet another in a granular concrete coating.Â â€œExperimentation leads to new opportunities, to an unlimited world of creation,â€ said Carbonell. â€œI want to eliminate boundaries and expand the field of design â€“ this is my own view of creation.â€
The ‘Diversity’ series is being shown at the Palazzo Ferre, a space otherwise used exclusively for Gianfranco Ferreâ€™s fashion shows, in conjunction with the Salone di Mobile, and will be on view throughout the month.
