Verner must be pissed.

Launched by Casamania, the Him & Her chairs are born directly from the ideas behind the Panton Chair.

Designer Fabio Novembre describes his pieces as “an evolution of the hermaphroditic original, declined into the harmony of the two sexes. They assume sculpted forms like naked models of seduction but they feel no shame.”

Cranium concept

This Skull/Vanitas Collection chair is a refreshing take amongst the usual representations of the death symbol. Designed back in 2008, Vladi Rapaport’s sleek aesthetics & materials application, makes this a great conversational piece every discriminating non-conformist would want to covet.

Vladi Rapaport studied Product Design from the Utrecht School of the Arts Faculty in the Netherlands and has showcased his work in France, Italy, Israel, Netherlands and the UK.
