Swiss Institute presents the 2nd Edition of its Annual Architecture and Design Series entitled PAVILLON DE L’ESPRIT NOUVEAU: A 21st Century Show Home. Curated by Felix Burrichter, the editor and creative director of award-winning architecture and design magazine PIN–UP, the exhibition channels the visionary irreverence of Le Corbusier for a 21st century take on domesticity.
Originally launched in 1995, Frog is now available as Carbon Frog, an ultralight frame made with carbon fibers and a polyester. The seat structure has been shaped completely by hand with the use of multi-axial and unidirectional fabrics, overlapping orthogonally, to ensure structural rigidity in the objective of preserving the mechanical strength, while greatly lighten the weight.
Living Divani partecipates with a Carbon Frog that for the first time and only for this occasion, will be turned into a "rocking chair".
