Concept

Collection of stacking chairs and stools, made by soft integral polyurethane and chrome-plated metal structure. The shape begins to communicate and to extend from the visual point of view the softness of the material: the cylindric elements that make the seat and the backrest are really soft and yield to the weight, adapting themselves to the body, thanks to the springs, inserted to the foam. The starting idea is in the personal dream of the designer Monica Graffeo : she wanted to create comfortable, soft and not aggressive objects. The designer wanted to realize a chair that can avoid the usual tingling sensation at the legs, due to the traumatic contact between the body – soft – and a rigid structure. And Mints is really an object, that can transmit, also in the visual point of view, softness and comfort. Available in the colours : white, black, red : the chair, with or without armrests, the swivel stools, adjustable in height.

The small table, with chrome-plated base and top in painted stiff polyurethane, can be used for internal and external use; available in white and black.
