New visions for products

Let us focus on Frank Rettenbacher, it is a perfect name. The young Austrian designer based in Amsterdam was recruited early on by the Nova Milanese-based company to experiment with new visions for products.

In the wake of the Eames’ work of the 1950s, with legendary metal supporting structures for their chairs, Rettenbacher designs very thin polygonal surface tops, sustained by a similarly slender tie-rod supporting system.

Emil is a small table showing great equilibrium of form. It was created with the aim of reducing the physical impact of the object to a minimum, and it fundamentally reflects a light, changeable vision of day-to-day life.
