Wolfgang Family
Fornasarig_2011/2012 - first prize
The Wolfgang project is the first entirely conceived by this collaborative team, and, as such, it represents a sort of homage to the hospitality Nichetto has enjoyed in Sweden and an expression of optimism for his new “Scandinavian life”. In particular, the curved wood used to create the chair’s seat and back, which work in perfect harmony with the solid wood of the legs and supporting structure, offers an explicit reference to Scandinavian design. The project’s inspiration came from the way in which the wood used in the chair is treated, an aspect that emerged from observing the chairs designed by Hans J. Wegner and Michael Thonet, each of which is characterized by a unique use of the materials involved.
