FildeFer

Take your armchair outside with this clever riff on lawn furniture

Italian furniture designer Alessandra Baldereschi's work, while often surreal and usually ironic, is always completely functional. A moss chair lends a modernist form to an earthy material; a glass whale engulfs an indifferent fish. In her 2011 collection for Italian contemporary design company Skitsch shown recently at, Baldereschi gives the humble lawn chair a hefty dose of whimsy.

The FildeFer collection, practical, nostalgic and a little tongue-in-cheek, uses slim iron rods to deftly draw outlines of plush upholstery. Currently available in-store or by phone from Skitsch, it comes in gray, green, blue or white.
