White Forest Chair by Robby Cabtarutti and Francesca Petricich

One of our readers asked me via e-mail:

I am hoping you can help me identify a chair that I have seen in Bellevue, Washington at the Microsoft building downtown. They are white metal dining chairs and have a design similar to the Vegetal Chair. I have a picture of the chair and the imprint on the bottom. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Yess there is a vague similarity with the Vegetal Chair, but only vague. I was also thinking Konstantin Grcic, but also vague only.

After some research I was able to come up with the answer.

Italian designers Robby Cabtarutti and his wife Francesca Petricich designed this chair for Gruppo Sintesi But I also found Fast Spa having the chair in its collection. I don’t know whether the 2 are connected.

About Alexander Gendell

An architect working in Manhattan, NY, Alexander Gendell knows how to work with confined spaces. No matter how luxurious the end product, interiors tend to be tight. “This has always made me realize how ineffectively most spaces are actually used, and how difficult finding appropriately sized furnishings can be.”
