EARL | Chair
Solid wood chair
Solid Wood, Beech
Piaval and Fabrica present Earl, a collection by Daniel Rous, a designer at Fabrica, the communication and design research centre that is part of the Benetton Group.
The project confirms the aesthetic value of minimalist simplicity, but in this hides the complexity and precision of its manipulation of wood, the result of in-depth research and cutting-edge production technology.
The synthesis between light, agile visuals and the solid material make Earl an eclectic collection. It is comfortable and perfect for public spaces such as libraries, cafés, meeting rooms and more.
Earl is the fruit of the passion which Piaval and Daniel Rous share for manufacturing in wood and its intrinsic qualities. The collection calls upon a deep understanding for the importance of sustainability in manufacturing and its implication on the environment.
The Earl collection (chair and armchair) is made from solid beech wood and really showcases Piaval’s skill in manipulating curved wood.
The backrest is shaped into a harmonious, embracing curve. It serves as a counterpoint to the legs, which are angled slightly outwards. The seat is moulded to offer maximum comfort.
The chair and armchair are available in a natural finish, which brings out the attractive wood grain in all its glory, or in a wide range of shades. The varnish we use is strictly water-based, to protect the environment and promote sustainability.
EARL - Chair. Wooden seat and back. Shaped backrest for easy grip and handling.
