Last year's invention that led the designer to develop together with Zanotta the June chair – whose secret brilliantly resolved the flexibility between the back and the seat issue – resulted in the design of the all new Judy armchair
“It was a natural evolution to put my knowledge and experience to work at a larger scale,” Rettenbacher says while developing the aesthetic lightweight. Surprisingly the seat has a graphic outline, with extended armrests, to protect like a shell and at the same time guarantee a comfortable and reclined position.
Judy“By experimenting with a varying thickness of plywood, we found the perfect flexibility for the backrest to adapt to your body.” Then you may focus on choosing the wood finishes for the back as well as the color of the steel legs and on matching beautiful fabrics and leathers.
EmilFor the 2017 Salone, Emil gets a new outfit with two new frames – polished brass-finished or polished copper steel – and a new solid wood top respectively in natural painted Canaletto walnut or natural painted oak.
Emil“Over the past years, I explored and tested new materials and colors, and together with Zanotta we envisioned the solid wood top contrasting beautifully with the bright coppery or brass-finished base.” The table top, with its rounded off corners, seems to fluctuate over the base in metal reinforcing rod and it looks like it has a smooth touch, when you move it.
