Lapalma - LEM

LEM stool, Shin & Tomoko Azumi, 2000, Lapalma

In 1969, man landed on the moon in the LEM (Lunar Excursion Module). In 2000, at the turn of the millennium, the LEM stool was created, one of the symbols of Lapalma's style. The same lightness, the same absence of gravity, which, in the void created by the design, fosters its relationship with the environment. And like the Apollo 11, it could not bear unnecessary weights, therefore this amazing chair incorporated all functions in a highly elegant minimalist profile.
