Furniture Design

Szekely, Martin (1956)

The French designer who became famous in the 1980s with his Pi chair, decided in 1996, to stop drawing. It’s the function of the objects and furniture he must create that will now dictate their form. He therefore privileges simple shapes and high-tech materials that can be moulded for designs that gently “disappear” within their environment. Martin Szeleky likes to point out that ‘in the worst cases, objects are a burden and that in the best cases, they follow us like shadows…’
