robert stadler has designed a new version of the drucker rattan chair, an icon of parisian bistros first created in 1885 by french furniture company maison drucker. combining traditional know-how of rattan manufacturing with the advantages of an aluminum base, the corso chair overcomes two weaknesses of the original design: the humidity that infiltrates by capillarity and the difficulty of stacking due to the reinforcing cross.all images © studio robert stadler

‘ruelle’ chair designed by philippe tabet for the italian brand infiniti combines cast aluminum with plywood. a ruelle (alley in french) is a place where someone goes to discover every corner of a city, its secrets, its traditions and bistros away from the chaos, filled with these wooden chairs very characteristic and typical. the chair reinterprets the spirit maintaining the important elements of the bistro chairs common in france, like the narrow and wide backrest, and focuses the attention on the elegance of form and softness achieved through a material such as aluminum.
