The Silhouette Family originated from Pagani Periti’s collaboration with Martin Bereuter, in particular his belief that the ability of craftsmanship is that it is able to make the craft itself invisible. This piece explores this visibility and invisibility of craftsmanship through its design and execution. Inspiration however was not only taken from Tischlerei Bereuter’s practice, but also the setting of the collaboration, the Bregenzerwald landscape. From the side the design looks like a simple silhouette with the bent wood imitating the shape of mountains of Bregenzerwald. However when viewed head on, their purpose as chairs and their solid materiality become obvious.
The rocking chair as an object can evoke feelings of protection, calmness and family. These emotions are incorporated in the Silhouette Family not only because of their use as rocking chairs but also in their design as a family of intertwined pieces. For Pagani Periti, communal usage is an important component of the design. The set includes three different sizes, small, medium and large, which can be shared amongst family and friends but also combine into one object.
