Concept

From the Neve experience Ghiaccio was designed, a new lower and more comfortable armchair, softened by fabric cushions. If the supporting frame features a series of straight lines in different thicknesses, slightly bending, making it pleasantly aerodynamic, its round cylinder feet, the light bending of the back and of the suspended seat as well as the frame upholstery make it slender, intimate and welcoming. The use of white-stained ash makes the seat far more lighter, looking vintage, in the 50s’ fashion, further stressed by the orange or red wool covering. Structure in white, black, red stained ash or natural ash, covered in leather, eco-leather or fabric covering in all the colours of Porro sample collection.
