Cappellini News 2013
The Trez chair has a strong graphic design inspired by Brazilian culture; it was revealed in the "Cappellini NEXT 2012" talent scouting project which scours five continents for a completed project to add to the 2013 collection. It is a remix of the work of two great artists – Amilcar de Castro and Joaquim Tenreiro – from the plastic arts scene. Sculptor Amilcar de Castro is famous for his poetic use of clean cutting and bending steel, and Joaquim Tenreiro is considered the father of modern Brazilian design whose career began with his three-legged chair. A bold and eclectic mixture, an evocative and original shape-sculpture, the Trez chair is made of laser cut and welded 4mm thick aluminum.
