Cologne 2013: Berlin design studio Osko+Deichmann has launched a chair inspired by cooked spaghetti for French brand Ligne Roset.
Called Ficelle, meaning "string" in English, the chair is made from aluminium and is designed for both indoor and outdoor use. It comes in either black or white, along with an optional seat pad.
"Inspired by the smooth curves of cooked spaghetti, Ficelle is a unique poetic chair, nicely curved, fluid and light," say the designers.
The lightweight tubular legs continue along the sides of the seat and up the side of the backrest before curling over and down to become the back legs. These distinctive profiles are linked by aluminium slats that have been evenly spaced along the seat and back of the chair.
Osko+Deichmann was founded in 2005 by Blasius Osko and Oliver Deichmann, who met while studying at the University of Fine Arts, Berlin. We've featured projects from Osko + Deichmann before, including the Straw stackable chairs for Blå Station, and a collection of tubular steel and pine furniture called Kink.
imm cologne took place from 14 to 20 January. Other products launched at the fair included an asymmetrical desk by Thibault Desombre for Ligne Roset and a DIY curtain kit by the Bouroullec brothers.
