The Elephant Tube by Neuland Industriedesign, awarded the "The Best of Best Winners of the Interior Innovation Award 2012", is joined in the Kristalia family by its sister model the Elephant Sledge. The difference between the two is the steel sledge skid-shaped base of the later. The welcoming, fresh, form of the chair is reminiscent of the Kristalia Elephant Tube and, and as with the third chair in the family, the wooden framed Elephant Wood, is modelled on an elephant's back. With is gently curving base the Elephant Sledge presents a very compact, unassuming character, which is almost sculptural in its effect. The plastic seat shell is available in a range of colours making the Kristalia Elephant chair a reliable and practical all-rounder applicable in many situations both indoor or out, commercial or domestic.
Eva Paster and Michael Geldmacher established Neuland Industriedesign in Munich in 1999 and initially concentrated on classic industrial design for the cosmetic, media and outdoor sectors before in 2005 the pair switched to concentrate on furniture. Since making the switch the pair have established a portfolio of projects with international furniture manufacturers such as, for example, Kristalia, Nils Holger Moormann, MDF Italia or Interlübke. The work of Paster and Geldmacher is based on the belief that products are an expression of a certain world view, from this position the designer duo saw a need to respond to changing values ??and social phenomena with new aesthetic expressions - innovation rather than chasing trend. In addition to designing both have also taught at the University of Applied sciences in Munich and won major industry awards including the Compasso d'Oro.
