Mantis Chair by Claudio Sibille

Nostalgia towards the past is forever present in this work. This is no exception. Claudio Sibille wanted to create a piece that could have have been present in our grandparents desk or dining room and yet continue to be present, contemporary and even with a touch of modern feeling to it. The beauty of this piece is that one could easily imagine it in the Decorative art yearbook magazines of the 50s or 60s and watch it now and still look modern. This is timeless. Materials used are ash wood, metal for the hardware that fixes the arm rests with the backrest and upholstery.

The Umea is a very sexy, visually lightweight and elegant sofa bed for up to three people seating and two people in sleeping position. Though the hardware is the classical click clack system, the real innovation of this comes from the sexy lines and contours that make this quite an appealing piece of furniture.

The visually lightweight feeling of this elegant and yet strong desk takes us back to the scandinavian school of design. The awkward shape of the legs, the way they lean to the front almost like a lordly gesture of greeting, reminds us of the silouette of a noble man with his hat off greeting a lady. The desk welcomes us to use it. The shape of the drawers, like separate limbs of the desk, with their hanging sensation and a front personified look, scans the room like watchful eyes.

Twins Transformable coffee/Lounge chairs by Claudio Sibille

Twins Transformable coffee/Lounge chairs
The Twins coffee table concept is simple. A hollow coffee table stores two full wooden seats inside. The right and left surfaces of the table, are actually lids that can be pulled out of the main body of the table in order to allow the extraction of the seats. The seats have foldable legs that have to be rotated so to get the chair in the right position. Once the chair, or both chairs are out, the lids go back at the table. When the chairs are out, the table also works as a huge storing compartment.
Ludovico Office Drawer, Chair & Desk Combo by Claudio Sibille

Ludovico Office Drawer, Chair & Desk Combo
As with the Ludovico main furniture, this office version obvioulsy has the same principle which is to hide a full chair in a drawer with the chair not being noticed, and seen as part of the main furniture. Most will think that the chairs are a couple more drawers. Only when pulled back we see a chair literally coming out from such a crowded space filled with drawers. Inspiration in great measure came from a visit to Pittamiglio´s caste and all of its symbolic, hidden messages as well as hidden and unexpected doors or full rooms.

I wanted to create a modular sofa that could be transformed in several separate seating solutions. The whole furniture consists of just two different pieces of the same shape to form a variety of solutions. The main structure is the same lateral shape of the arm rests but only thicker. The arm rests can be turned 180 degrees to change or continue the main piece of the furniture.

The way it can easily go from a low coffee table into a full dinning room table or even a desk is quite interesting. The metalic pipes can be set in two different positions by rotation. The wooden boards are turned by hinges that let you increase the surface of the table. The name of this piece of furniture takes inspiration in the MacBook Air, due to its lighweight feeling, both physically as well as visually.

Ludovico Transforming Furniture by Claudio Sibille

The way it saves space is quite original, having two chairs completely hidden inside de drawer. When placed inside the main furniture, you don´t realise that what seems to be drawers are actually two separate chairs. You can also have a table which can be used as a desk when taken out of the main structure. The main structure consists of four drawers and a compartment just above the top drawer in which you can store many things. The main material used for this furniture, beign eucaliptus fingerjoint, is eco friendly, incredibly resistant, hard and has a very strong visual appeal.

The shape of the chair is a perfect letter S, so if you rotate it 180 degrees it will maintain its same shape while using another upholstery colour or design, depending on your mood.

The beautiful and peculiar shape of a single stainless steel pipe giving shape to the furniture is what makes this lounge chair so interesting. It The bending pipe and the bent plywood forming the chair makes it very elastic and comfortable. The design feels very light and delicate.
Sensei Transformable Chairs and Coffee Table by Claudio Sibille

Sensei Transformable Chairs and Coffee Table
The Sensei Chairs/cofee table is a piece of furniture that like most of my creations, begin by finding new ways to take advantage of small spaces through geometrical random drawings. The style of this project is pointed in a minimalist fashion, where we have no curves, but instead we have lines, planes and neutral colors, such as black and white. The chairs, when set horizontally and joined by their backs, gives us a cofee table. The middle section of the table (where the backs are set together) is amazingly strong, and one can sit down on the middle without even moving the table.
