Nicolette, elegance and strength for the new seat designed by Patrick Norguet, who Ethimo will present at the Salone del Mobile 2016.
A multifunctional project that comes from the desire to experiment with unpublished material combinations. Nicolette takes shape from the idea of creating a lightweight and delicate aluminum seat in the lines, robust in use; a seat capable of resisting the action of time, designed for the outdoors but suitable for multiple uses; an original and successful session.
Like a haute couture dress, Nicolette shows a certain sophistication while maintaining a simple character that makes it elegant.
Ethimo and Patrick Norguet have created a chair that combines multiple materials and different processing techniques of aluminum: the aluminum structural parts are injection molded, then assembled thanks to the use of extruded aluminum components.
Nicolette finds her distinctive feature in the upholstery of the backrest, a true evolution of outdoor fabrics. Working on a specific industrial patent, a rigid pleating of the fabric was obtained, keeping intact the characteristics of water repellency and resistance, fundamental for a product dedicated to outdoor.
Finally, a teak element joins the back, which contributes to making the seat even more 'warm' and comfortable.
This refined simplicity that distinguishes it by combining lightness and functionality with attention to detail and the research of materials, makes it ideal both for furnishing outdoor spaces and for enhancing the living area. The most sophisticated furnishing and relaxation needs are met by its enveloping shape.
Nicolette is the contemporary interpretation of unconventional elegance.
