Immersing ourselves in the dense atmospheres of the light rushing towards autumn sunsets, we find the quiet sensation of life returning to a slower pace, a regenerating relaxation that Baxter celebrates with some of the new pieces in the Outdoor and Indoor collections.
These include the Hakuna Matata armchair. Its name is a declaration of intent: named after the famous expression which in Swahili means “no worries”, with its decisive and compact curved lines it suggests an unprecedented approach to the time we spend in the garden as well as in the home. From the backrest, which draws a small arch in the part that connects it to the wide, gently concave seat, to the two solid legs on which it rests firmly, this item designed by Roberto Lazzeroni smiles reassuringly at us in its uniqueness.
Conceived as a sculptural figure capable both of informing the space in which we decide to place it with its presence, and of welcoming us in the embrace of its generous proportions, it is playful in relation to the other elements that furnish the outdoors and informal next to those in a living room, bedroom or study. In the caramel hues of sandblasted natural iroko with an oil finish to help it cope with outdoor life, as well as in the solid ash stained matt black to fit the interior with delicate elegance, there is a desire to let Hakuna Matata change with us, to allow it to take on those slight changes typical of wood and emblematic of Baxter’s approach to the distinctive nature of the material.
Thus, in both versions, this object is both a decorative accessory and an inviting landing place for a peaceful break from everyday life.
