Italy's most popular newspaper, La Republica, has launched its annual Chairs' Champion League for 2012 with a line up of 20 design icons you can vote for, including Living Divani's Family collection of five chairs designed by Japanese architect Junya Ishigami. What could only be described as a quirky collection of squiggly shaped characters, yes for some reason they look quite human, the Family chair collection brings a smile to your face. Also included on the shortlist is Porro's Gentle Chair by Front, La Regista by Serralunga, Mademoiselle by Philippe Starck for Kartell, Janette by the Campana brothers for Edra and one of our favourites here at more space, the Mezzadra stool by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni produced by Zanotta.

Good luck to all! To cast your vote, visit La Republica here.
