PLIS PLAS, the new creative chair of CALMA

Get a fun, creative, unique chair in just a "plis, plas", i.e. a blink of the eye… Wish to know how? Click and discover more about the PLISPLAS chair, a new creation by Beatriz Sempere for CALMA...


Starting from a 2mm polycarbonate board, with just a simple fold we change from 2D to 3D, obtaining an enveloping seat shell. The perimeter cut allows to get the standard configuration, but we can also add some extra cuts to obtain endless variations in shape and size. Once you have chosen the final shape, it’s time to personalize the look: you may choose among a plain coloured PC board (white or transparent) and a 3mm polyethylene board in red. Corporate logos, photos and bespoken designs are also possible.

To finish up, the seat shell will be fixed with just 4 screws to the bichromated and lacquered steel bar frame.

Graphic patterns are screen printed directly on the polycarbonate boards following a traditional printing system and using a special UVA ink suitable for outdoor uses.

Thanks to the versatile concept which is at the base of its design, PLIS PLAS can easily turn into a unparalleled tool to promote the corporate image of enterprises, such as fashion brands, restaurants, hotels, bars… Any brand that wishes to boost its image in the market conveying values such as creativity, dynamism, thinking outside the box, joy & fun, wellbeing and easy lifestyle…

And in addition to this, the combination of light yet highly resistant materials makes of PLIS PLAS the best option for contract spaces

About Beatriz Sempere

Born in Alicante (Spain) in 1975 and graduated in Industrial Design at the Polytechnic University in Valencia, Beatriz Sempere specialized in footwear design at the Technology Education Center in Elche. Soon afterwards she started a fruitful collaboration with major companies of the sector, such as Bata, Melluso, Lumberjack, Zen, Astor Müller, Panama Jack and Freemood. Her real interest, however, was house planning and all the issues related to habitability. Forms and the way they can complete the architecture of interior spaces became the focus of her personal research in that field.

She moved to Italy where she kept on projecting furnishing accessories that combined the Spanish tradition with a taste for more refined and harmonious designs, yet linear and geometric at times. In the latest year, she has strengthened her collaboration with CALMA, a brand that leaves her free to experiment with forms, materials, innovative manufacturing processes and finishes. Other notable collaborations include BlackTie, Loop&Co, Italcomma, ICONSfurniture, MIDJ and the Italian designers Franco Poli and Pier Luigi Frighetto. In 2014, together with Franco Poli, Beatriz founded the Sempere#Poli Design Studio.
