Roger table is a family of tables with a round or “squircle” (a combination of “square”and “circle”) shape, in various diameters and heights. The latter can also be adjusted thanks a gas spring inserted in the column. Available in various finish
options with laminated or lacquered top, Roger table is an ideal complement for every location, from home to lobbies, office to public areas. “It is very interesting how one of the most designed objects proposed by
International Style can be rethought”, Monica Armani told us, confirming how a round table can take on ever new and original interpretations.
A fusion of decoration and function, Coat is an armchair without feet yet also without problems of floor grip. In fact, using the same technique of prints for hosiery, a nonslip faded decoration has been printed on the fabric which guarantees perfect stability on the floor yet at the same time with a low weight for easy moving.
Separate, removable, very soft and enveloping covers rest on this structure, like a blanket thrown over the seat.
Herkner developed a special technique in which he could use the yarns for three-dimensional objects. a steel metal grid supporting the yarn which is woven in and out of the frame, shaping the baskets and bowls. designed to store things, the ‘bask’ objects can also be used upside down as small tables.
Lightweight, strong and environmentally friendly, Hemp Chair is the first stackable single-shell small armchair devised and designed for the use of a new industrial material based on natural fibres. A sheet, with over 75% of its composition made up of hemp, is heat-formed via a production process with low environmental impact borrowed from the car-making industry. This technique ensures extreme ease of modelling which enables the softness of the shapes to be exaggerated to such an extent that they achieve an almost 3D effect.
The Hemp Chair project is backed by the German chemicals company BASF and with its gemstone-shaped structure represents a new approach to this complex type of seat.
Tia Maria embodies the search for perfect seating ergonomics. A chair, a small armchair and standard armchair which demand maximum quality of the supports and where the slant of the frame, together with the symmetry or asymmetry of the armrests, determines the choice between formal and informal posture.
The base is in chromed tubular steel and describes the perimeter shape. The leather upholstery is load-bearing, the synthesis of a linear approach to the idea of comfort.
A lounge chair in the form of a Japanese futon mattress casually draped over a wire frame. The futon’s random folds are abstracted and cast in a urethane mold, creating a distinctive and gentle pattern of ‘controlled folds’. The lounge chair comes in three versions, featuring one arm, two arms and no arms respectively, and can be combined to create a longer/larger seating unit. The collection also includes a chaise longue, sofa and dining chair.
The cloud tables were created by photographing clouds in the sky and abstracting their shadows into a dotted pattern, then translating this image onto the tables with laser hole-cutting technology. The three tables with their soft, cloudlike silhouettes can be used very flexibly: smaller tables can be placed on the largest one, tucked away underneath it or brought out for full use.
