Bulgarian Design

While going through this month's magazines I usually buy, I came across the Bulgarian designer Mirko Tattarini. He is a professor at Instituto Superiore per le Industrie Artistiche (ISIA) and designed the first ever product for Design Appart. Inspired by the Bulgarian design of the second half of the twentieth century, with a particular focus on the Soviet period, he created the Bansko Boo seating collection. The materials he uses are plywood, chromed steel (for the legs) and different fabrics for the cushions.

Bansko Boo armchair and ottoman are available in natural linen, grey velvet corduroy, grey with stripes in eco-leather and orange with stripes in eco-leather. The armchair is meant to be matched with the carpets of the KASH lines, which are attached to the seats for a flexible integration suitable for an unconstrained, informal use.

The Bansko Boo chair's design is inspired by the repetition of boomerangs and can be completed with a fabric cushion for more sitting comfort.
