NoGlue Chair

I am born in 1984. Raised in Diano Marina, since 2003 I live in Torino, first for the degree in design at the Politecnico and then for a Master in Interior at the IED. Since 2011 I work with OFFICINA delle IDEE founded by Diego Giachello.
Arché, for me, is a research with which try to be a designer and not a stylist.

Multilayer shape from one panel of birch plywood. Quick transport and assembly. Democratic price.
Project comes from a brilliant idea of Gianpaolo Morandi, piedmontese artisan, who develops and patents, a connection fusion of two joinery classics: half-lap and through dovetail. This technical tool allows to obtain an object made from a birch plywood with one cnc pantograph process. Components, after being treated, are directly packed and ready to be dispatched. Form follows function, ergonomics and productive process property, as well as the productive process meets form, which consist in a surfaces composition, visually indipendents. Each parts explain its role with shape, direction and color. Mentioning Enzo Mari, design is not just one radical project but a continuous research, a series of small reforms.
