Antidiva unveiled its Cherie seat and footstool at the Milan furniture fair this week.
The design of Cherie reworks the classical seat shape and is inspired by ‘a hoover’ according to the design group.
Inspiration for the chair draws on influences and ideas that were popularised in the 1960s, in combination with what Antidiva describes as an ‘ancient shape.’
Greta Canevese, owner of Antidiva, also says that the range strikes for a popular, ‘more commercial feel’ than other avant-garde designs.
The point is echoed by John Sacks, managing director of the Arenson Group, which is a partner of Antidiva. ‘Offices are changing the way that they use space. Antidiva products [are created] to suit these new areas,’ he says.
