The "56 H" chair and the art of weaving
The "56h" chair is a standout product whose strikingly original design and abstract lines call to mind a peacock’s fan. Created by Italian designer Fabio Novembre for Driade, it is a brilliant marriage of tradition and modernity: woven from strands of plastic, the "56h" chair is a bold and flamboyant new take on classic outdoor wicker chairs. The seat's name references the number of hours it takes for one of these to be hand-made by skilled craftsmen: 56 hours - a true work of technical brilliance! This chair is the perfect synthesis between art and artisanship, invention and expertise. Its unconventional look and unexpected, elongated, form make it hard to see what "56h" is for at first sight! This fun chair has to be straddled like a horse's saddle! "56h" brings you a new way of sitting down.
