Practical and Colorful Florinda

The ‘Florinda’ Chair was created by talented Swedish designer Monica Förster. (She is not new to this blog, I’ve written about her unique paper lamp in this earlier post.) These vibrant colors are not very typical of Scandinavian design, however, this chair was designed for the Italian furniture manufacturer De Padova.

What I like about this chair is how materials with very different characteristics are combined seamlessly. Here, the solid beech wood frame is coupled with a painted ABS plastic seat and backrest, creating a unique, cheerful dining chair. Price is around $480.
