ROCK STARS

In an age of health gu­rus and fad di­ets, we have all been told that pasta is not good for us. But here is a seat in­spired by the for­bid­den nosh which is too good to pass. Ital­ian de­signer Fabio Novem­bre re­vis­ited child­hood mem­o­ries of his grand­mother’s hand­made pasta to cre­ate these rock­ing chairs which are stand­outs with their sim­ple yet orig­i­nal de­sign. Fash­ioned by Novem­bre for the fur­ni­ture la­bel Dri­ade, 36 h and 56 h were un­veiled at the pres­ti­gious Salone del Mo­bile 2012. The out­door chairs which have a throne- like qual­ity with their high back and gen­tly curved seat are made of alu­minium and then cov­ered with wo­ven plas­tic. When asked about the un­usual nomen­cla­ture, the de­signer said that it is a homage to the skilled yet name­less crafts­men who made the ob­jects. Log on to www. dri­ade. com for more.
