First previewed at Silvera-Université, the prototype of the Compas chair shows the continuing collaboration and affinity between Patrick Norguet and Kristalia which began in 2011 with the “Poule” occasional table and the “Degree” stool/storage henceforth available to the public. The definitive version of Compas will be presented at the Milan Fair in April.
[ “compas” chair ]
“Compas” is a timeless tribute to contemporary furniture conceived in the forties on the principle of fluidity and comfort. Here Patrick Norguet uses current technical possibilities to the full to refine the lines in order to achieve a chair which is both welcoming and stackable, for use inside and out. The seat and the back are polypropylene and the feet are epoxy lacquer die cast aluminum.
poule occasional table
[ poule occasional table ]
The Poule table has a light and cheeky soul, first of all because of its name, a veiled reference to chicken legs of which the base recalls the shape, but it is above all functional: produced with drawn wire aluminum and die cast aluminum elements with its constant and recyclable qualities.
It folds and is available in two heights, with a black or white epoxy lacquer, for outside use, and its laminated top is offered in two versions: round or square. Poule will be available from the end of April 2012.
[ degree stool/storage ]
Is it a pop sculpture, a scenographic element or an enormous cork? No, it’s Degree a veiled reference to the British qualification and its unique hat. Presented last year as a prototype at the “Salone del Mobile” in Milan, it is currently available in two versions: in either black or white polypropylene, with or without cork cladding. Versatile and amusing, it is a coffee table which also acts as a small piece of furniture for storage. Degree is available from mid-March 2012.
