VAL™ (MEX) + Natuzzi’s ‘Chair Affair’ project for the London Design Festival : 2011 : 17 – 25 September. This year presenting : The Tenango Sound Chair. Commissioned by the Italian furniture house Natuzzi, Valentina Wohlers (MEX) is invited to be part of “A Chair Affair”, a design challenge where ten Londson-based creatives were asked to reinvent Natuzzi’s iconic Sound Chair. For this venture, She joined forces with 180° Interiors, a Swiss born, London-based interior design atelier with whom I share a passion for furniture and tailored design.
This exciting new creation will be exhibiting at the Natuzzi store, 80-81 Tottenham Court Road, London W1, from 17th to 25th of September, as part of the London Design Festival 2011, along with a collection of redesigned Natuzzi chairs by international designers from around the globe.
A private view reception, hosted by Natuzzi, will be held in the store to celebrate the occasion on Wednesday the 21st of September, where they will be sharing their creative process in a conversation with a quite well known design journalist. Not to be missed!
