FRATINA - Design: Emilio Nanni
Chair and armchair in ash wood, stained or lacquered, seat upholstered in fabric, braided cord, leather or straps.
Fratina, designed by Emilio Nanni, is a metaphor for squaring the circle. The structure is defined by a pattern of clear lines that recall the square, the backrest is built by curving the wood into a circle, in a reduced form in the chair version and generously in the armchair version.
Chair and armchair of the Fratina model are presented as a typological reinterpretation of the minimal seat, revisited in a contemporary key, enhancing the Vitruvian balance in the relationship between two pure geometric figures. Made of ash wood, stained or lacquered, both variants of Fratina are available padded and upholstered in fabric, intertwined with cord, leather or straps.
Finishes and colors: ash wood, stained or lacquered, fabric, leatherette, belts, cellulose cord
Dimensions: chair: base 48,5 × 54,5 cm, height 74 cm, seat height 45 cm
armchair: base 51,5 × 54,5 cm, height 74 cm, seat height 45 cm
TANGO - Design: Timo Ripatti
Hanger in stained or lacquered ash essence.
The Tango coat hanger designed by Timo Ripatti goes to the origin of the wood material, transporting all the strength and naturalness of this living and warm material into a pure and iconic object, through the best tradition of Scandinavian design. The particular twist of the central joint recalls that fluid dialogue of bodies which in the tango so marvels.
