Product description

The gran kobi collection by Patrick Norguet has been enriched with a new variant: gran kobi essentiel.
The new variant uses the same structure featuring aluminium legs painted various colours and a support in die-cast aluminium that encloses the seat in an elegant embrace.
In gran kobi essentiel the shell has shed the welded intersecting steel bars to become a generously sized structural element made from foam polyurethane and fully covered with fabric or leather.
While its design has been simplified, the new armchair remains highly versatile: ideal to relax in, it goes equally well in a domestic living room, a waiting room, an informal office setting. Patrick Norguet’s gran kobi essentiel is a perfect match for the ottoman in the collection, for unparalleled comfort.

Product family


The gran kobi collection evolves naturally with the introduction of a wider base to allow for new uses. Gran kobi is a generously proportioned, low-slung armchair. A most versatile seat, perfect for a relaxing break. Ideal for use in domestic lounges and public waiting rooms, or even in informal office contexts, gran kobi is conducive to a relaxed attitude and guarantees maximum comfort.

As the entire collection, also the shell of gran kobi is a sort of rigorous and enveloping basket, created by woven soldered round steel wire. The support belt, made from die-cast aluminium embraces the seat elegantly, totally enveloping the form. The structure consists of varnished aluminium support and legs and shell in the same color, available in different colors.

A set of cushions completes the armchair: shaped to adhere perfectly to the shell and create a visual whole with the structure, they are upholstered in fabric to afford an extremely comfortable seating experience and the freedom of movement necessary to assume different positions.

Gran Kobi completes the Alias range of upholstered products designed for domestic interiors and waiting rooms, also thanks to a pouf/bench endowed with a twofold function: to act as an element of comfort or a support for technological devices such as computers and tablets.
