The design intention of the Parabola Chair by Los Angeles-based product designer Carlo Aiello was to create a simple and porous yet highly sculptural chair. The challenge was to achieve a single surface that serves as seating, armrest, and backrest supported by a minimal structure. Although the chair exhibits curvatures in two directions (hyperbolic paraboloid) all its components are straight and easy to manufacture. In order to achieve perfect comfort both curvatures were carefully calibrated to hold the body in the best position.
The Parabola Chair received the prestigious International Contemporary Furniture Fair Studio Award in 2013 and will be exhibited at the ICFF (May 18-21).
Carlo Aiello (1978) graduated from the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) at Columbia University in New York City in 2004. After collaborating with Asymptote Architecture and Skidmore, Owings and Merrill he established his design studio in Los Angeles, California. Carlo has been Juror at the World Architecture Festival, AIA Miami, AIA Los Angeles, and the Krob Competition. Since 2010 he is Faculty at the School of Architecture at the University of Southern California (USC) where he teaches architectural design.
