With its light and transparent design, AIIR by GamFratesi reinterprets the classic shell chair for contemporary living. DEDON’s first collection to incorporate injection-molded seating, AIIR is suited for use outdoors or in—and so lightweight it’s a breeze to move between the two. It comes in armchair and side chair versions, with a choice of tapered teak legs or sled base. AIIR’s exclusive color palette reflects influences from the designers’ Nordic and Italian backgrounds. The collection now also includes dining tables with teak legs and tabletops in the color choice of Black pepper, Lipari 2.0 or White.
AIIR’s design was inspired by geometry and nature. The vertical slits in the seat back recall a forest of birch trees, their narrow trunks allowing wind and light to pass while creating a landscape that is rarefied yet defined. AIIR’s connection to nature is also reflected in its mix of earthy, airy colors. From the semi-transparency of the seat back to the sleek curve of the arm, AIIR’s design conveys lightness and clarity. Crisp, careful lines give the chair a graphic character, while the rounded seat offers remarkable comfort, with or without optional seat and back cushions.
The overall effect is one of simplicity and a harmonious balance of solid and empty space. For all its refinement, AIIR had to be sturdy enough to last a lifetime, indoors or out. Finding the right balance between lightness and strength required fresh thinking and a bold, creative collaboration between design and production. Continuous experimentation eventually led to an innovative injection-mold opening that allowed for exceptionally precise, high-quality extractions.
