The Principles of Essentialism by Beplushave

Presented at Salone Satellite, The Principles of Essentialism by Ilia Potemine of Beplushave is a collection that is based on contrast between squared and curved, heavy and light, between thin and thick, fine and raw.

This is a new idea of an armless chair. The chair is for people who like to chill out — its oversized seat allows you to get comfortable in any position.

Everything started from the need to create something that might be able to support messy people. Mess looks extraordinary on the top of the table. Special spaces were created inside and outside the table.

These new pieces will be produced in small limited series, the first edition including 20 armchairs, 10 tables, and 20 lamps. Each piece is handmade by the artist, Ilia Potemine, signed, and assigned a serial number.
