Oggetti Lenti by Pierre Charpin

Vases are part of the collection “oggetti lenti” (Slow Objects), in reference to the slowness with which Pierre Charpin designed them. “They are present while seeming detached from this world, they are both concrete and abstract, their presence is simultaneously concise and undecided. The “Oggetti Lenti” occupy an indeterminate place between what already exists, what is still unfamiliar to us. These “Slow Objects” gradually find their place in the uncertainty of our present time.”

Dr. Yes by Philippe Starck & Eugeni Quitllet

Dr. Yes is a counterpoint to Dr No. The inner part of the chair has an opaque finish, almost resembling a soft fabric, while the surface of the back and the legs is glossy. The distinguishing features of the chair are its comfort, ease of cleaning and wide range of colours.
