It’s the simple things that change our lives. Polet adapts to our needs and makes us feel at home.
Castiglioni designed Polet to open and close as intuitively as possible, just like a deck chair.
A mixture of the nomadic and the permanent, a bit like a camp bed but also a throne. Polet is the creative genius of Achille Castiglioni, who came up with the idea for his seaside house. The wood is black lacquered beech and the pins are brass: the beauty of this armchair-bed is in the details.
A multi-functional object is never perfect.
Better to design for one function than two.
If the first works the second won’t.
It’s more likely the second works rather than the first.
Which is the first and which the second? I don’t know.
Take it for one function and two will work.
If you have friends, take two so the functions become four.
Will all of them work? I don’t know.Achille Castiglioni
