For the 10/10 anniversary exhibition presented by Moda InternationalEugeni Quitllet and Mobles 114 unveil a world preview of the Tube chair on Saturday 5th September. Through its weightlessness and tubular structure, the Catalan designer shakes up modern vocabulary to design a chair foreshadowed by Marcel Breuer and Mallet-Stevens. A seat that Eugeni Quitllet sums up as “the best example of the production of an idea.”

Tube is a chair with soft shapes reaffirming its industrial origin with lines that express movement in a humanisation of the object with a hint of humour.  It appears to have been designed freehand in space like a linear steel tube culminating in a polypropylene seat.

Tube is a chair and table system with hidden virtues.  Simple in appearance, intelligent in its structure: resistant; adaptable to all internal and external spaces; stackable and easy to maintain. Ideal for restaurant or hotel projects, but which from the start was designed with a view to indifferently integrate both public and private spaces.

Eugeni Quitllet is a Catalan designer, a graduate of the Barcelona school of art ’La Llotja.’  He synthesises forms and functions with a sinuous and explosive elegance creating best sellers with contagious enthusiasm. Kartell, Alias, Lexon, Christofle, Vondom and Air France endorse this designer who willingly describes himself as ‘Disoñado,’ a contraction in Spanish of designer and dreamer. From objects to space, Eugeni Quitllet is one of these rare designers capable of taking his stance on the world to make us see it from a new perspective.
