Parabola Chair in Polished Stainless Steel

The Parabola Chair designed by Carlo Aiello for ENSSO wins the Red Dot and Good Design awards and launches Kickstarter campaign.

The design derived from the mathematical analysis of hyperbolic paraboloids and their strong structural characteristics of minimal surface thickness and long spans. The research focused on the potential of calibrating these surfaces to the human body. Two paraboloids merge into a single surface that serves as seating, backrest, and armrest supported by a lightweight frame. The outcome is a highly sculptural chair seen as an open mesh that allows light and space to flow through – a porous visual statement.

“The goal was to create a new chair, something radically novel with a refined aesthetic and an easy fabrication process” – says designer Carlo Aiello

The Parabola Chair is available in polished stainless steel; ideal for indoors and outdoors and it is built to last and delight generations.
