SILHOUETTE | Chair
Leather, Wood, Metal
The Silhouette seating collectiondesigned by Luca Scacchetti is morethan just a general shape.What remains in our minds is theprofile of its form, with the combinedshape and shadow creating the silhouette. The design remainsoutwardly anti-static, with an almostuncertain equilibrium due to theapparent lack of physical contactbetween the seating and back. This double silhouette is repeatedbetween the outside frame in naturalor lacquered wood, and the insidecushion covered in leather or fabric.This double repetition actsto underline, as if to rivet the imageof the slim profile in our minds, wheretechnologies and elegance meetto create a general lightnessof the ensemble.Winding lines, crossing betweenthe shapes of a boomerangand the shapes of the wing of a bird,are brought back to paper in theiressential geometry, with nearlyLeonardesque traces.High, medium or low elementson a sliding spoke, or tubular frame,or a single steel pole can be utilizedto build a family of desks and conference tables of every shape and style. They can also be used in public places like bars, restaurants, lounges or hotels to propose solutions with great elegance for seating that appears almost flying or hanging.
