The impressive MIA collection strips back visible elements and unnecessary detailing, giving a nod to functionality whilst providing a certain minimalist joy.
Nouvel stated about MIA:
I was looking to create an archetypal outdoor chair… something that could become a contemporary reference, as XIX century chairs were in historical public gardens.
From the chair, the entire collection was born. Containing two types of folding tables, a stool and a chair (with optional arms) all available in various colours. Originally slated as outdoor pieces, MIA is quickly taking pride of place indoors as well.
Utilising simple clean cut lines comprising aluminium and steel, Nouvel has created pieces which are sturdy and light, perfect for their original intended destination of the contract and hospitality market. Each piece holds an ability to either fold, hang or stack for easy cleaning and storage, which logically render MIA perfect for residential purposes also.
The entire MIA collection is available at KE-ZU.
