The Elipse chair marks Patrick Jouin iD’s first piece for Italian design company Zanotta.
Elipse reconciles the rational of the functionality of industrial design with the power of a work of pure sculpture. The chair’s aluminium tubular structure using square profiles makes it conveniently lightweight and marks the strength and character of its apparent simplicity. By contrast, the welcoming softness of the areas one bears against – in 30%-recycled injection plastic – guarantee seating comfort. The circular opening in the backrest reveals the careful detailing of the assembly, while also providing easy portability.
The Elipse chair replies to all the needs of the business sector, but would also be quite at home in a domestic setting.
