Antoine Fritsch and Vivien Durisotti, the creative minds behind the innovative design agency Fritsch-Durisotti, were always inspired by natural materials. But their love affair with Mother Nature was at an all-time high last week, when the Parisian design duo unveiled their most recent collection, “Natural fiber by Fritsch-Durisotti,” at the Superstudio Più furniture trade fair in Milan. Made from organic fibers like bamboo and rattan, the quirky pieces marry design, art and function and prove that nature is truly the best medium.
1. Bamboo loungers
As part of the BEE collection, created in partnership with the designers at TurriniBY, these stylish chaise loungers are slightly more than your typical family room furniture.
“The quality of the design of the curves can make you forget the functionality and position the object on a purely aesthetic dimension,” Fritsch and Durisotti said of their creation.
The design duo incorporated natural bamboo and rattan fibers and multilayered wood to increase the durability of the BEE loungers, and their cushy seats are made from natural wool.
