Description

Inspired by Antonio Aricò’s research into the hidden personalities of functional objects, The “Swing Chair” brings the romantic notion of a gentle outdoor swing indoors. Within a domestic setting, the “Swing Chair” becomes like a “puppet’,” a living marionette with its own presence and character. More than a flying chair, it’s an invitation to dream and play, but also a sweet metaphor. Like Gepetto did for Pinocchio, Aricò gave life to his idea with the use of ropes: the arms of the graceful “Swing Chair” are strong, and literally adopt the position of a real human. copying your movements and taking either a sober or a playful posture. The “Swing Chair” comes in two different shapes, and was first presented on the 26th of October at the Wabi Sabi exhibition that took place in Turin; it will soon be presented in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Berlin and Paris.

Antonio Aricò
Between Milan, where he opened a studio/showroom in 2011, and Reggio, where he was born and raised, Antonio Aricò works on personal limited collections and collaborations with big Italians brands such as Barilla Group, Seletti, Alessi, and Bialetti. From his first limited edition collection, "Back Home" in 2012, Antonio’s work has paid special attention to the relations between art, craft and design, with a particular interest in Italian artisanal and artistic identities. Aricò has presented his work around the world, at venues that range from the Salone de Mobile in Milan, Maison & Objets in Paris, Wabi Sabi in Turin, and the Design Museum Holon in Tel Aviv. He remains very close to his family, roots and culture, working hand in hand with his grandfather Saverio. Simple and rigorous in his design approach, spontaneous and enthusiastic in his work relations, he proposes instinctive solutions in creating everyday objects with a special attention to details and the quality of the materials.
