Presented at this year's Salone del Mobile, Spanish designer Martín Azúa's Puppet chair is a reinterpretation of Kvadrat's Hallingdal 65, an iconic woolen textile first designed in 1965 by Nanna Ditzel.
Azúa's chair is part of a larger project, in which the Danish textile manufacturer has invited seven international curators to select design talents from seven key regions. The open brief presented each curator with the task of selecting designers that would reinterpret Hallingdal 65, developed more than 45 years ago, in a modern context.
Invited designers include Fredrikson Stallard, Simon Hasan, Glithero, Raw Edges, Philippe Malouin, delangeléon, Pauline Deltour, Benjamin Graindorge, Constance Guisset, Jean-Baptiste Fastrez, François Mangeol, Ionna Vautrin, Martí Guixé, Mermeladaestudio, Miguel Vieira Baptista, Henrik Tjærby, David Taylor, Sofie BrÜnner, Mads Hjort, Studio Greiling, Front, smallprojects, Ministry of Design, mischer'traxler studio, Adrien Rovero, Katrin Sonnleitner, Bless, Jonah Takagi, Jonathan Olivares, Todd Bracher, and Stephen Burks.
The installation will be presented at the Jil Sander showroom, in Milan.
