Chief Chair Ivory by CARA \ DAVIDE

Chief Chair Ivory is a minimalist chair designed by Milan-based studio CARA \ DAVIDE. They work in the fields of product design, event curation and offer creative consultancy to companies and private clients. Interested in experimenting with materials, techniques and processes related to different territories, they also produce a series of limited editions working together with artisans in Italy and South Africa. Graduating in product design from IED Milan, Cara and Davide started their professional careers in diverse areas ranging from apprenticing with artisans to working with industrial companies before merging their experience in 2016. The collection, consisting of three aesthetically harmonious objects, is the result of an in-depth visual and historical research, mainly referring to sub-Saharan Africa.With an interdisciplinary approach between art and architecture, the designer-artists, in a sort of journey through Africa, collected and catalogued numerous photographs of objects of use, masks, architectures and decorations in order to extrapolate some significant characteristics: thicknesses, proportions, irregular surfaces and synthetic geometries.
