Introducing Kristalia's Colander Chair by Patrick Norguet

Previewed at Imm Cologne and Maison&Objet in 2015, Patrick Norguet’s latest chair is pure design genius viva Italia! style. Echoing the look of its moniker perfectly, this inventive side chair draws inspiration from the oft-used kitchen utensil used to strain your favorite pasta. The above illustration playfully exhibits the use of the chair’s namesake.


The Colander Chair's highly versatile with stackable design ideal for both indoor and outdoor spaces. As well, it’s ideally suited to both hospitality and home settings.

Crafted from molded polypropylene, the Colander’s shell boasts all-over small holes that look amazing, while remaining functional (allows for water run-off in outdoors).

The chair’s simple base is made from weather-resistant die-cast aluminium with crosspiece and extruded legs.

Shown here in crisp white, the Colander Chair brings fresh modern style to outdoor social spaces.

This modern side chair has a simple base is made from weather-resistant die-cast aluminium with crosspiece and extruded legs. Available in a range of colors reminiscent of those of the Amanita mushroom—often found in fairy tales and cartoons.

Kristalia says of Patrick’s Colander Chair, “From the perspective of pure design, we like to think that what Patrick has developed in 2015 is the outcome of a series of objects and works of art that have become milestones in culture in general. We think of: Meccano (Frank Hornby, 1908); Braun Radio (Dieter Rams, 1960); the Muji CD player; (Naoto Fukusawa, 1999); the Apple Mac Pro (Jonathan Ive, 2006); and, last but not least, we think of the art and pictures in the Edge series by Damien Hirst (1988)—all commonly used products that are real works of art in terms of design.”
