The iconic spaghetti chair that still garners international recognition

Italian Giandomenico Belotti is one of Italy's most recognized designers of all time. In 1979 he designed the first chair for the furniture manufacturer Alias, which has since become one of the most iconic chairs internationally with a permanent exhibition at MoMA (The Museum of Modern Art) in New York. The chair is simply designed and consists of a chrome frame with transparent strings in the material PVC, which is flexible and makes it comfortable to sit on.

The spaghetti chair, as it is called, has a timeless and simple design, which is the reason for its unbroken popularity over the years. Today, the iconic chair is available in several variants, and you will find it as both lounge chair and dining table chair.

Steel and plastic are typical materials Alias ​​uses in their design. Materials that are equal to quality and give a timeless expression that makes the chair attractive to this day. Decorate with the spaghetti chair and use it to create a contrast to the sofa's soft expression with its raw design. Without compromising on seating comfort, you get both chair and sculpture in one and the same design.

Artistic ceramics that are still popular

Tommaso Barbi is an Italian designer who created voluminous coffee tables, lamps, picture frames and beautiful dishes throughout the 1970s. All handmade in ceramics. Imagine wood-clad walls, bamboo furniture and large palm trees that filled the living room. A heavy interior with furniture that wanted to draw threads for a garden atmosphere and the nature outside the home's four walls. It was the style at the time and very telling of the style that also characterizes Tommaso Barbi's design. His lamps are particularly inspired by nature, where both snakes, palms and shells are reflected. Adapted to the popular heavy colors of the 70s, Tommaso Barbi worked with especially brown and other neutral shades in his designs. Colors that in recent years have once again found their way into many homes, especially here in Denmark. Back to the heavy and warm colours, such as burnt orange and maroon, Tommaso Barbi makes design modern again. His warm color choice fits in with many Nordic homes today, but also compliments precisely the minimalist Scandinavian style.

He is known for creating sculptural furniture in organic and soft shapes, like this lamp base.

The soft color choices of brown shades and warm brass details seem inviting and warm to a Scandinavian interior. Contrast the white-painted walls and cool color choices in the home with Barbi's unique ceramic and brass lamp base. The delicate colors and muted glazes of his works in ceramics are the reason why his designs unhesitatingly fit into the modern home style of today.

In his work, Tommaso Barbi is interested in creating organic forms, which he finds inspiration from in nature. It can be seen in his leaf-shaped lamps in pure brass and table lamps like seashells, like this lamp base decorated with seashells

Tommaso Barbi has a consistent style, where ceramics and brass are the most used materials in his designs.Often separately, as a single dish or an entire mold-cast lamp in brass, or together, where brass forms the details of his ceramics and they are allowed to compliment each other. He is particularly good at working with hard materials without making them raw, but instead, he manages to work towards soft shapes, like this dish.

His technique often consists of a simple design with twists that give the recognizable organic style. The glaze is a single color with small variations, which make it vivid to look at and show the craftsmanship behind it. Despite its years behind the scenes, this dish will still look good in today's decor, either as storage for jewelery or as the family's fruit platter.

Unique vases to decorate with 

Toso is the surname of one of Italy's most renowned glass manufacturers for generations and still exists today. Originally, the six brothers were behind it, and made a name for themselves in Millefiori, where very small pieces of glass are assembled into, for example, a vase. A glass style with many colors and small details that, as the name suggests, looks like a thousand flowers. Millefiori is many very small pieces of glass put together to form a mosaic pattern. The colors are often kept in strong shades, such as blue, orange, green and red.

The manufacture of Millefiori consists of several glass rods that are fused together to form a floral pattern. The bars are then cut into smaller pieces. The glassblower blows the shape of the glass to be made, such as a vase or a water glass, then dips the outside all around in the small glasses. Thus, different glasses fuse together without the pattern disappearing. This is what is called Millefiori.

Over time, the family has kept their designs in strong colors, like the two vases. Two vases that have been in the family's own private collection. The glass house had its last own production on the island in 1968-1970 and this vase originates from the last production. Since then, the vase has been part of the Fratelli Toso family's private collection and it still has the original sticker. An absolute collector's item in perfect condition.

Let the vases get attention by placing them on the windowsill, where the sunlight can shine through, so that the pattern extends from the glass down onto the window sill. The vases can also stand well next to the sink in the bathroom or with a small roadside bouquet on the dining table.
