An old project of mine found its place at the very interesting exhibition “Made inThessaloniki”, organized by Parallaxi magazine. Works from industrial and graphic designers based inThessaloniki, can be seen at theMacedonian Museumof Contemporary Art. A very interesting show, which displays a great variety of work with great quality and imagination. “Glyka” is an easy chair designed back in 1995, which has four different ways of seating on it. It is a fun element (with cartoon aesthetics) that can fit in any environment and most of all: kids love it!!!

Bookinist is a movable chair designed especially for reading.
It is based on the principle of a pushcart and can be rolled to a favourite spot.
About 80 paperbacks can be stored ready for use in the arms and the backrest of the chair.
With a reading lamp and hidden compartments for writing utensils (reading-glass, bookmarks, pencil, pencil sharpener and a pocketbock are included) Bookinist invites you to read and think at your leisure.
Proportion is at play in the Cartoon chair. The supersize backrest makes the frame, which is 83 cm high, 89 cm wide, and 71 cm deep, seem positively miniature in comparison. Made of oak with a seat and back of braided-elastic ribbon, the chair is available stained black or natural

Marina Bautier graduated from Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College (UK), Belgian designer Marina Bautier set up her own design practice in 2002 in Brussels. She works on a wide range of projects, from products to interiors. Marina Bautier cultivates a design approach based on use. Away from any pretence, she creates furniture and objects whose quiet normality hides many small attentions; furniture and objects which render many services without ever encumbering. While she gives priority to simple structures and materials easily manufactured, she also attaches great care to the appearance and implementation qualities. Away from technological rhetoric, Marina Bautier emphasizes the beauty and the modernity of familiar materials, and especially of wood. Marina Bautier works internationally with clients such as Idée (JP), Case (UK), Ligne Roset (FR), and De La Espada (P), Swedese (SE).
