In honour of the 25th anniversary of its debut, one of the most iconic products from the Cappellini catalogue –the Felt chair by Marc Newson – will be available in a numbered edition, signed by the designer.
Compared the original design, this new interpretation maintains the ironic, playful and non-conformist edge typical of Newson’s products, but the fibreglass structure has now been embellished with leather upholstery in three vintage hues that enhance the sinuous and captivating form of the chair: baby blue, violet and celadon.
Born in Australia in 1963, Marc Newson worked around the world, first in Tokyo, than in Paris, finally in London where, with Benjamin de Haan, he opened Marc Newson Ltd. in 1997. A wide number of his projects are cultural symbols represented by the best museums all over the world, for example the Moma of New York and the Vitra Museum. He is the designer who best entered the pop culture scene: his pieces have been used by Madonna in her videos and in the Austin Powers films.
