From Poland with Love: Malafor08/05/2011

Last month at the last edition of Fuorisalone in Milan, it was a very nice surprise to find our designer Malafor on the “Young Talent on Show” organized by ElleDeco.

Agata Kulik-Pomorska and Pawel Pomorski - aka Malafor - graduated at Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk (Poland) in 2003 and since then they have created a fantastic collection of good looking and cleverly functional objects.

On the ElleDeco stand, we saw the latest version of the Blow Sofa – the Blow Sofa Extreme. The inflatable pillow-sofa is made of DAKRON a sailcloth used in sailing yachts. DAKRON fabric consists of an impregnated synthetic polyester fibre, resistant to rain and sun, perfect for outdoor. The cover is manufactured by a professional sail maker according to the production technology and characteristics of a yacht sail. For this reason a strengthening stitching and original sail elements have been applied in different parts of the Blow Sofa Extreme.

Beside the Blow Sofa Extreme, a couple of Trunks in Black and White, which we think they are still a great young and funky seating alternative.  I was with a friend and he pointed out to me the quality of the finishing details of this stool.

I discovered Malafor a couple of years ago and I still think they are a great design studio to keep an eye on for the next decade. So I am very pleased with Elle Decoration choice!
