DESIGN BY CHRISTOPHE PILLET, 2020
Christophe Pillet reworks the Mem chair, softening its original geometric lines with soft upholstered padding. Of the original chair, Mem Soft retains the polypropylene legs, which remain visible under the generous seat, whereas the non-removable upholstery – in all the fabrics and leathers available for the collection – turns it into a contemporary and minimalist bucket chair. The huge comfort of the seat makes it ideal for home and contract spaces.
Christophe Pillet, a French designer who started his training in Milan in 1991, is highly versatile with his creations and partnerships: from product design to interior design, architecture and set design, he always pursues interesting simplicity, elegance created with a few details. “The chair and table I have designed for Kristalia are ambitious projects, not only due to their design but also to the difficulty involved in industrially producing them. These objects are simple in shape but technically complicated.”
