SEAT­ING ‘ FIL NOIR’ BY CHRISTOPHE DELCOURT FOR MINOTTI

This project is built around the con­cept of a thread (or fil in French, giv­ing this chair its name), a de­sign fea­ture that is a metaphor for con­ti­nu­ity. Here, the thread takes the form of black metal tubing, which not only out­lines the piece’s sil­hou­ette, but sup­ports and en­velops it. From gor­geous, put­ty­coloured uphol­stery to per­fectly soft goose-down fill­ing, all of the ma­te­ri­als for this de­sign have been metic­u­lously se­lected. This great at­ten­tion to de­tail, crafts­man­ship and so­phis­ti­cated yet sim­ple style is what sets the ‘Fil Noir’ apart. £4,825 (minot­tilon­don.com).
