Presented during the 2019 edition of IMOB International Istanbul Furniture Fair, the world’s third-biggest exhibition in the furniture field held in Turkey, Atelier Balin is a new project by Federico Delrosso and Turkish furniture company Balin.
Atelier Balin is conceived as a design laboratory for research and experimentation on materials and shapes to develop new contemporary collections. Federico Delrosso will be the art director for the years 2019-2021.
“Taking advantage of Balin expertise, Atelier designs iconic pieces that enhance the texture and flexibility of wood.” FD
The first prototype, unveiled during the fair, results from the observation and free interpretation of the production processes: an informal modular chair, that can be assembled and stacked to become a container, whose shapes are taken from the moulds already in production at the Balin factory.
