Product description

Armchair with the frame in solid ash wood available in five finishes: natural (fin.96), anthracite grey (fin.93), ash grey (fin.68), walnut painted (fin.2N) and dark painted (fin.67), with inserts in metal painted in a bronze colour with natural effect. The seat and the back have a structure in Polimex (composite polyester/polyurethane material) and the padding is in flexible multi-density polyurethane, covered with fibre. The base has wheels on the front side which make it easy to move.
The non-removable upholstery is in fabric or leather, while on the back a handle is applied, that is in metal covered with saddle leather, whose colour is matched with the finish of ash wood.

Concept

It was movement that inspired the artistic ideas of Boccioni and to mark the hundredth anniversary of the death of the great futuristic painter, Alessio De Francesco pays tribute to the theme of dynamism with the Branca chair. It's a meeting of opposites in which the light frame in solid ash is defined by semi-elliptical curves and suggests a dynamic tension in which the chair seems to want to leap. The unique arms are made from one piece of solid curved ash, while the backrest is composed of 9 curved sections. The seat and the backrest invite one to enjoy the comfort inspired by the soft, accommodating and static shape. Branca is also equipped with castors on the front and a handle on the backrest to make it easier to move. Once again Giorgetti takes another step towards strengthening that tradition of cabinet-making, which allows it to create a design such as this. The new collaboration with designer Alessio De Francesco, a fresh talent on the Italian design scene, highlights how Giorgetti strives to give space and visibility to new architects.
