In the old days, caned chairs were commonly used by Italians. Apparently even Vincent Van Gogh had one. Atelier Biagetti is the Milan-based practice of Alberto Biagetti and Laura Baldassari. The atelier operates in the fields of art, design and architecture to create objects, interiors and site-specific installations for galleries and private collectors across the world.
Here is one of my sketches of their work named: Vincent Chairs. They designed an unusual yet beautiful version of the old caned chairs. These were displayed at Unikat exhibition, curated by Alice Stori Liechtenstein.
And for all industrial design lovers, there is a sketch competition, that might interest you. For more info, go to designdaily.in
