Clockwise from top left: Diatom chair, Homage chair, Landi chair and Emeco SU stool

Diatom chair

First up is the Diatom chair because it’s lightweight and sleek, and suitable for indoor and outdoor use. It’s also great if you struggle with space as the chair can be stacked vertically without tipping forward.

British designer Ross Lovegrove created the Diatom chair for Italian furniture brand Moroso.

The Diatom is entirely computer generated using aluminium-pressing technology developed by the car industry. Being made of aluminium, it’s 100% recyclable while also being light weight and sturdy.

We hope the Diatom chair will hit Australian shores soon!

Homage chair

The Homage chair made our Top 4 chairs from Milan Design Week 2014 list because of its fun design and warm materials.

London designer Torsten Sherwood originally created the Homage chair as a DIY piece for an open source design website The Sesame Seed Project.

Sherwood was inspired by the work of Enzo Mari and wanted to design a strong and efficient piece that was an expression of structure with aesthetic effect.

We love the Homage chair for the garden or beach home.

Landi chair

This classic chair, originally designed by Hans Coray for the 1939 Swiss National Exhibition, has been slightly modified and brought into the modern era.

Seventy-five years after its debut, the Landi Chair has found a new home at Vitra. They have modified the design and updated manufacturing processes to give the Landi a new life. It’s weatherproof, lightweight and comfortable, and is also manufactured using aluminium processing.

It’s Landi’s simple, timeless and practical design that we find so attractive, making it a great investment piece for your home.

Emeco SU stool

The last chair on our Top 4 chairs from Milan Design Week 2014 is the SU stool. It’s right on trend with precise engineering and the use of new, surprising eco-conscious materials like eco-concrete, reclaimed oak and recycled aluminium.

The SU Collection of stools and tables was designed by Emeco in collaboration with Nendo. The Japanese concept of ‘su’ comes from traditional Japanese culture and means simple, plain, minimal.

That wraps up our Top 4 list, which one is your favourite? Tell us in the comments below.
