Bacchette folding chair
The folding safari chair is an archetype evoking elegant and exotic vibes: moving memories that Bacchette conveys in this contemporary reinterpretation of a chair.
The piece’s character is emphasized by the two beechwood rods (“bacchette” in Italian) that support the backrest and act as armrests, floating almost on the thin, barely perceptible metal frame. Finishes shift from natural tones for the outdoor version, featuring a back and seat made of durable technical material meant to be experienced on a porch, veranda, or conservatory. The richer leather version is ideal for indoor settings, from the living room to the study. Warm colors characterize the powder-coated steel frame in coppery red or black-veined brown.
design Note Design Studio
The challenge taken on by the Stockholm studio for this piece, in synergy with Zilio A&C and all its excellence in craftsmanship and detailing, was to create a new concept for a chair that would be light and sturdy at the same time. A compact, lightweight design returns in the new Candid stool, where a few simple elements come together naturally through a complex construction process and careful jointing systems. Trapezoidal supports offer the eye a continuous variation in perspective, varying from more delicate to bolder depending on the angle. The Candid stool and chair, in natural or stained ash wood, lend themselves to many diverse settings, from the home to the office.
design Sylvain Willenz
An ingenious construction system marks the Upon seating family, now complemented by a new stool. The plywood backrest seems to rest on the metal frame simply. The variation in thickness from 6 to 18 mm of the backrest allows it to be fitted into the metal structure. The result is an original synthesis of minimalism, solidity and comfort: Upon thus becomes a multipurpose stool that can be used for any counter. The multilayer wood veneer seat is upholstered in fabric or leather.
Kinoko armchair and sofa
A collection of armchairs and sofas with a strong and simple structure that encloses the soft contours of the back and seat in a bold and expressive contrast. Comfortable and ultra-modern in style, with a wide armrest that becomes a tabletop when needed, Kinoko fits easily into any home living room, hotel lobby, or office. The armchair is available in metal or solid ash wood. The seat and back are upholstered in elegant natural wool.
Arkad pouf system
design Note Design Studio
An iconic and sculptural presence for the home or workplace, Arkad recalls the arcades or porticoes of classic architecture. This family of playful and whimsical poufs can be used individually, or multiple pieces can be juxtaposed to create ever-changing seating systems. Arkad includes linear elements in two lengths and a curved corner element. The poufs are upholstered in natural wool.
