Rho-Pero - Cappellini. This was the most talked about piece at the Cappellini stand. Francois Azambourg was not trained as a designer, nor as an architect, but as an engineer, yet his Mr. Bugatti chair for Cappellini is so playful and cartoon-esque. I guess his engineering training comes through in the innovative use of materials; crumpled tin injected with polyurethane, though mass-produced, each one, with its own pattern of dents, is slightly different.
