At the Maison et Objet furniture fair this year in Paris there was a show entitled Eco Design. Sixteen designers submitted pieces of furniture that ‘respected the environment’ providing beyond doubt that design can have an impact on us, without impacting on the world around us.
Designed by Philippe Riehling for Patrick Breze, the Neo Noe chair is such a piece. Elegantly carved our of beech wood, the piece uses natural varnish and glue which produces no dangerous emissions. The wood comes from no further than 100km away from the studio and when the piece is transported to shops it is always done so with other pieces.
