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 born from the desire to experiment with new material combinations. Nicolette takes shape from the idea of creating an aluminum seat that is light and delicate in the lines, robust in use; a seat capable of withstanding 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 her elegant.
Ethimo and Patrick Norguet have created a chair that combines multiple materials and different aluminum processing techniques: the aluminum structural parts are injection molded, then assembled thanks to the use of extruded aluminum components.
Nicolette finds its distinctive feature in the backrest upholstery, 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, essential for a product dedicated to the outdoors.
Finally, a teak element joins the backrest, 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 research into materials, makes it ideal both for furnishing outdoor spaces and for enhancing the living area. The most sophisticated furnishing and relaxation needs are satisfied by its enveloping shape.
Nicolette is the contemporary interpretation of an unconventional elegance.
