Product description

Caratos is the new chair distinguished by the elegance of its basic, geometric structure, with closely calibrated thickness and detailed, made of graphite or amber painted die-cast aluminium. This chair is definitely light, not just because of its essential and linear design, but also for its low weight and easy handling. The seat and back use structural panels of plastic material placed on a polyurethane layer, then covered with leather.

Concept

Chairs in two versions, armchairs, poufs and coffee tables are the new proposals that extend the Caratos series launched last year. These new items both reflect and strengthen the original designs’ essential features while softening them by introducing embracing shapes. The light die-cast graphite or amber painted aluminium structure is retained, while padded backrests contribute to the formation of the armrests, creating seating with no postural restrictions at all, encouraging conversation and relations between neighbours. The poufs and coffee tables echo the design of the frames and are ideal complements to the seats to create conversation areas and social settings.
