Product description

Wing chair and stool with the frame in profiled steel, elastic straps and plywood. The padding is in multi-density expanded polyurethane, covered with fibre, with inserts in walnut canaletto wood (fin.11) on the profiles. The base has inserts in metal painted in a champagne colour and a special mechanism inside the structure of the armchair allows a characteristic rocking movement, while the pouf has a 360° rotation. The not-removable upholstery has a triangle quilting, drawn in high frequency, on the external part of the wing chair and in the lower part of the stool. The hinges fixed on the seat and the backrest of the armchair allow the single movement of the armrests and of the headrests – with opening on the right or on the left according to one’s choice. One small cushion in fabric, matching the one of the armchair, completes the wing chair and it is quilted on one side. For the stool a case in fabric or leather with two pockets is available, to be placed on the seat and fastened with a belt in walnut canaletto wood.

Concept

This piece is an invitation to stop and enjoy the gentle passing of time. An exhortation to revisit furniture classics using a language without preconceptions. The Sahara armchair by Rossella Pugliatti reinterprets the bergére tradition with an unstructured twist, in which the form is defined by an arrangement of cushions. The tactile quality of the quilting, which forms the seat's surface, provides an extremely pleasant tactile experience and encourages relaxation: the geometric pattern on the cushions adds a touch of decoration. The frame is in canaletto walnut and is designed to provide a distinctive rocking motion. The design is completed by a rotating pouf equipped with an elegant and practical storage compartment.
