INTO THE Blue

The Daily Telegraph - Telegraph Magazine - - THE CUT -

Flashes of cobalt blue en­livened all man­ner of prod­ucts, from high­con­cept t ables to clas­sic din­ing chairs a nd eye-catch­ing ca r pet s. Dutch de­sig ner Ni­co­let te Br un­klaus’s Acoust ic t apest r ie s were in­spired by a stint liv­ing in Morocco, work­ing with a car­pet-knot­ting stu­dio in Se­frou to give tra­di­tional skills a con­tem­po­rary spin.

The rich hue was also used to give ar­chive prod­ucts new life. Ital­ian com­pany Eligo showed an up­dated ver­sion of a Chi­ava­rina chair (first cre­ated in 1807), and Vi­tra re­leased Jean Prouvé’s 1934 Stan­dard chair in cobalt. The lat­ter was the most beau­ti­ful chair I saw at the fur­ni­ture fair, prov­ing good de­sign doesn’t date.
