Marco Dessi has designed Dakar Chair for Italian furniture manufacturer Skitsch. In designer’s words, “The design of the backrest which is made out of only one 2mm strong aluminum sheet demonstrates both, the stability and at the same time flexibility of the material when cleverly applied. Covering the legs of the chair like a dress, the bent metal sheet results in a backrest of grand stability, and still it gives way like a spring when you lean back.
The choice of material makes Dakar a light but extremely durable piece of furniture suitable for outdoors just as much as indoors. The chair creates the impression as if it could be taken apart into its basic components within seconds.”
