Luca Fornasarig represents the fourth generation of the Fornasarig family. Luca studied engineering at University and after his father retired he took over the company and continued constantly developing and industrializing new projects. In the years 2000 he worked with the best chair designers in the world and like his father’s passion for designing himself he started to create his own wood chair designs: successful models ensued quickly.
One of Luca’s underlying characteristics is being curious and focused. The HDS system is very much a realization of his ideals both in the methods he used for its development and in its final form. “The idea for the HDS 1.1 was to create an incredibly thin and light stackable chair with good ergonomic shapes” says Luca. Using his advanced engineering design approach Luca put resolved a technically challenging issue: how to set seat and back within the frame rather than onto it.
With the HDS the seat and back become part of the frame itself . Not just a good design but rather a great one, where quality is integrated on all sides and the product is clean and friendly with a great attention to detail. An example of Luca’s design process and product philosophy.
