Tommaso Colia: CAF (Computer Aided Furniture)
Selected, exhibited and published
CAF is a very simple chair: it is a comment to today's design way.
In fact its shape makes it similiar to a three-dimensional model, created by any 3D CAD software.
Firstly draw a 2D spline, secondly extrude it and.. the chair is done.
In order to emphasize it, the dimensionings are still on the surfaces; this is a sign which represents the process which has created it.
CAF is a chair which is able to illustrate its own genesis and its design.
