MILAN: Furniture Fair - Fabrica for Italian Chair District

MOST: Fabrica for Italian Chair design. How do People sit? These reflections formed the foundations for the exhibition Searching for Cassiopeia, a limited edition collection of twelve concept chairs combining different techniques and materials, designed by Fabrica, headed by Sam Baron, the Benetton Group communication research center, and manufactured by the Italian Chair District.
Above: Cassiopeia no. 6 where people meet to trade secrets.  They go off in groups of four in a large room, sit down, turn their backs on others and mutter under their breath while straining to heart the secrets being whispered around them. 
Round steel legs with wide back welded to the seat; castolin and mig welding high-tech net upholstery.
