The particularity of the Donna Armchair is the mix of different design periods in one piece. 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.
