Bespoke - - WHOA! -

The Him & Her chair takes in­spi­ra­tion from the world’s first moulded plas­tic seat – the S-shaped Pan­ton chair by Dan­ish de­signer Verner Pan­ton – and adds to it the beauty of the hu­man form. “I’m very ba­sic, I’m fas­ci­nated by peo­ple, and as a male, I’m also fas­ci­nated by fe­males,” says the chair’s de­signer, Ital­ian architect Fabio Novem­bre, in­sist­ing that any man who says oth­er­wise is ly­ing. Orig­i­nally cre­ated for Casa­ma­nia, which was this year ac­quired by fel­low Ital­ian fur­ni­ture brand Horm, the chair is crafted in four dif­fer­ent colours and comes in ei­ther matte or pol­ished polyethylene, us­ing a 3-D scan of two seper­ate plaster sculp­tures be­cause, as Novem­bre puts it: “I be­lieve in the com­pli­men­ta­r­ity of man and woman.”
