DESIGN BY CHRISTOPHE PILLET, 2012
Made of injection-moulded polypropylene reinforced with glass, the Mem chair by Christophe Pillet, with its barely highlighted angles and curves, combines strength with elegance. The two holes in the seat are aesthetic yet also functional details, since they make the chair stackable despite its embracing shape. Mem is also available with a removable soft polyurethane cushion that matches or contrasts with the seat, or with a lumbar cushion upholstered in a choice of fabrics, making the seat even more comfortable.
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.”
