Furniture: Richard Hutten’s X-Chair for Moroso
Dutch designer Richard Hutten has created a chair with a distinctive X-shaped connector on the back.
Designed for Italian furniture brand Moroso, the X-Chair launched this week at the Salone del Mobile in Milan.
“Normally when you see a chair for the first time it’s always from the backside because it’s grouped around the table,” said Hutten. “So the starting point for this chair was the backside.”
“It’s a very round chair, it’s a very friendly chair,” said Hutten. “It fits in all kinds of situations to cheer up the space.”
“I wanted the X chair to have an inside and an outside, like how when you open a melon it’s green on the outside and red on the inside,” said Hutten.
