Flow States: A Bespoke Design + Marbling Experience for Natuzzi

An Immersive Event Celebrating the Power of Design to Relax and Revive

We were invited by Italian furniture brand Natuzzi to reinterpret their classic ‘Re-vive’ chair for London Design Festival 2016 through our pattern lens.

We were invited to draw inspiration from Natuzzi’s belief in harmonious living and the natural and traditional elements found in the brand’s native region of Apulia: sun, olive trees and leaves; hand-crafted lace; classical architectural motifs. Another reference point was the ingenious design of the chair itself, which reclines without a lever mechanism by responding to the weight of the body.

Our serendipitous black and white pattern, hand marbled onto hand cut leather tiles, celebrated the elegant ergonomics of the ‘Re-vive’ chair and the power of design to induce relaxation, a sense of well-being and a re-energising state of flow. Bringing the collaboration to life, we hosted an immersive marbling workshop inviting participants to experiment with the hands-on craft we used to create the chair, playfully exploring the connections between considered design, creativity and positive living.
