The Classic, represented by natural braided cotton straw, much used in traditional Italian chairs; and the Modern, as seen in the rounded feet and foam-lined seat. With this piece, Larissa Batista brought the classic into a contemporary context, offering the Donna Armchair as a piece to enrich various environments.

The Armchair Sole stands out for its balance and functional volume, shapes that invites us to experience all its comfort and ergonomics, applied in its construction.
