The definition of two materials widely used with high skill and experience by Lapalma, was the starting point for this project, a chair with pure and essential lines.
The target was a research of a three-dimensional continuity between the two materials: a metal tube with square section and the plywood. The formal integration of the components is a perfect balance between the frame, the seat and the back but it was a difficult goal to reach. The frame is conceived as an architectural shape and creates a balance of a light combination together with a strength and stability. Function, comfort, lightness and stackability have also been considered but not as limits: these are elements playing a fundamental role in the formal definition of the product.
