Chair #23

—Designed by Mauro Lipparrini

So many of these furniture designers seem to be terminal overachievers. Mauro Lipparrini graduated from the University of Florence's Department of Architecture, where he is currently a faculty member. He has also done extensive work in the fields of industrial design, interior design, public and private housing, retail and wholesale showrooms, exhibition installations, corporate identity, and cutting edge graphic design... phew... and all on a worldwide scale! And oh yeah, he designs chairs too. A leader and innovator in the style that has been called "natural minimalism," Liparini's style is all at once spare, clean, bold, and organic. Gotta love those Italians!
