Barcelona-based designer Eugeni Quitllet wanted to synthesize nature in order to naturalize industry, to recover the sense of authenticity, beauty and goodness, so he created Tabu chair for Alias. It reinterprets the hand-crafted tradition of chair-making using digital fabrication, digitally carving and assembling FSC certified wood to create a series of contemporary chairs with various seat backs. There are five different versions/generations of ‘Tabu’, from full back rest to one that doubles as an occasional table. I like the original backrests, especially those with colorful plexiglass – a really cool idea of a modern chair – and with a leaf on the backrest – that’s so inspiring and reminds of spring!
