Patrick Norguet for Alki

The sober and elegant Makil chair is the designer’s latest work for France’s Alki.

Norguet, who has designed everything from Lea Ceramiche’s Waves and Lines tiles to Plain Air, a wall-mounted air purifier, comes an effortlessly beautiful stackable chair. Made from a combination of solid oak and oak plywood, the chair pairs razor-straight angled back legs with a curved back rest. This simple elegance is typical of Norguet-Alki collaborations. The French designer’s previous collection with the manufacturer – Silvera – is a series of streamlined tables and tall chairs.

The Makil chair debuted last week at Maison&Objet.
