Alteforme Salvador – chairs with strong personality

The salvador chairs, furniture from iconic design and strong personality, will "wear" special outfits of autumn-winter 2015-2016 collections, designed by five avant-garde designers:

  • Fausto Puglisi
  • Manish Arora
  • Yazbukey
  • KTZ
  • Corto Moltedo

Exclusive partners of this important event will be the charity association Oxfam, who will donate the proceeds collected in charity projects, and the well-known online retailer of fashion and design Luisaviaroma, which selected the five fashion designers.

Starting from June 2015 during Pitti Immagine, an edition of the five miniature chairs will be on sale on, dedicated to all fans of design and fashion that will not be able to win the collector's release of the  favorite chair.

"We've provided one of our most iconic product for this important charity project that merges design and fashion to support broad humanitarian projects together with Oxfam" says Valentina Fontana, art director and founder of altreforme.

During the Milan Design Week, the limited edition of the salvador chairs will star in a stage set in the former Church of San Carpoforo, via Formentini, 10 - Brera, and like every year altreforme will be present with all its collections in Fiera Rho Milan, at the usual location D27 in Hall 10, with an original setting titled "Grand altreforme hotel" inspired by the Wes Anderson's movie "The Grand Budapest Hotel".

A selection of the collection "Moschino loves altreforme" will also be on display in the windows of the fashion boutique SUPER Piazza San Marco, 1 - Brera.

Fausto Puglisi, born in Sicily but always fascinated by the American culture, has a style characterized by refined cultural influences, modern and sensual, with strong references to the romance of the past.

The classicism of ancient Roman sculptures, the opulence of baroque, hedonism of Bacchanal and even contemporary Hollywood binge and couture of the 50’s, are all sources of continuous inspiration that you can pick up in the interpretation chosen for his salvador chair.
