Walter de Silva, Head of Volkswagen Group Design, has joined forces with the Audi Concept Design Studio in Munich to create an armchair called “Luft” – the German word for “air.” A curved aluminum element – symbolizing Audi lightweight construction – lends the armchair its weightless appearance. Premium furniture-maker Poltrona Frau of Italy presented the new armchair last night in its showroom in Milan.
