Since its inception, a core value of the Arflex brand has been its design collaborations with architects and engineers, for the cultural experimentation in realizing new products.
When architects Neri&Hu were approached to design a seating program, there was a natural desire to place emphasis on the aspect of the construction craft. As such, the genesis of the design concept is the structure itself, a classic triangulated construction that is repeated several times around the chair, so that you can admire it from each point of view. The cow-hide strap that rolls up around the rigid frame covered by fabric, which holds soft cushions, is fixed between the steel structures of the feet, creating in this way a cradle, that gives harmony with the contracts of the materials.
Rather than conceal the framework and attempt to make the chair levitate off the ground, the elegantly crafted supporting elements themselves become the highlight of the piece.
The frame is realized in moulded polyurethane foam and is placed on metal legs, available in different finishing. Belt in cow-hide in the different colors of the arflex collection.
