Swiss designer Philippe Bestenheider worked out for the company “Moroso” the collection of furniture which was called “Nanook”. There is no translation of this word. This is a name of the Indian tribe who were the heroes of documentary. This way the designer tried to join ethnic motives with modern form-making. The form of the chair calls many associations. It will seem to ones that it looks like the structure of snowflake, to others – like fractal, to thirds – like skin of animal. The author tried to join two-dimensional and three-dimensional world by the instrumentality of uncommon outline of the chair and drawing painted on its surface. For creating this chair Philippe Bestenheider conducted numerous researches in the sphere of fragmentations and molecular structures. The first experiment on the base of collected data was chair “Isomera” which the designer presented in 2006-2007 on the exhibition “Promosedia”.
