Milan preview: Sylvain Willenz for Cappellini

Monday, 12 March 2012

Made from reinforced steel bars and exploring the simplicity of design using construction materials, the Candy Collection by Sylvain Willenz will be launched at the Cappellini Design Village in Milan.

The Candy tables are available in both square ( 40x40x40h cm) and round (45x40h cm) shapes, and come in blue, green, white, red and black. Willenz has used an industrial coating process wich transforms unwanted steel bars into a decorative design element.

Willenz says of the pieces, “I wanted to play with the idea that something you would normally see as an inappropriate or unattractive material for making furniture could become very chic when shifted in another context and looked at from a different angle.”
