Man of Parts Is a Way of Living, Not a Single Aesthetic

Founded by Stephan Weishaupt, who is also co-founder of the contemporary design store Avenue Road, Man of parts is characterized by a way of life rather than a unique aesthetic. The furnishing brand wants to embody the traveler who is interested in unique finds, similar to Weishaupt itself. In order to reflect the lives of the globally thinking people he has met on his own travels, Weishaupt has selected employees who are open to design. Leading designers such as Yabu Pushelberg, Philippe Malouin and Sebastian Herkner have contributed to the Man of Parts collection, which is made by boutique manufacturers across Europe. Here are just a few pieces that caught our eye.

The Via del Corso Lounge Chair by Yabu Pushelberg takes its name and inspiration from the Piazza Venezia in Rome with its three-sided roundabout and the churches. Its down-to-earth and impressive profile is balanced by soft curves and a lightness of balance.

Cord chair

The Cord Chair was designed in 1953 by Jacques Guillon, who integrates the concepts of reduced materials and upcycling that are way ahead of its time. The original used real parachute cord left over from the war! These editions, made exclusively by Man of Parts in Italy, have the approval of the Guillon family.
