Kvadrat: „Werner Aisslinger’s Nesting Hexagons make reference to two points of inspiration: the ease and comfort of a picnic in the grass, and Joe Colombo’s tube chair from 1969. The design consists of a series of tube modules and plaids, which form a set of easy to carry, upholstered rolls. The rolls can be connected together by special buttons to create loungers or used separately like cushions.

Aisslinger explains: “Our concept came from the idea of a picnic, with a blanket in the grass and pillows around. The hexagons are ideal for lolling around or relaxing on the ground, both indoors and outdoors.”

He has created four sets of hexagons using the Divina fabric, sticking to the goal of not using any other visible material. The colour concept came from Nicole Losos, who worked alongside Aisslinger in his studio. He continues: “The fitting plaid was created to show off the full intensity of the possible colour combinations available within the fabric. I imagined people reading or lounging in a park and out in nature.”
