Type

Fabric armchair with armrests

Design Year
2017

Since its inception, a core value of the Arflex brand has been its design collaborations with architects and engineers, for the cultural experimentation in realizing new products.‎
When architects Neri&Hu were approached to design a seating program, there was a natural desire to place emphasis on the aspect of the construction craft.‎ As such, the genesis of the design concept is the structure itself, a classic triangulated construction that is repeated several times around the chair, so that you can admire it from each point of view.‎ The cow-hide strap that rolls up around the rigid frame covered by fabric, which holds soft cushions, is fixed between the steel structures of the feet, creating in this way a cradle, that gives harmony with the contracts of the materials.‎
Rather than conceal the framework and attempt to make the chair levitate off the ground, the elegantly crafted supporting elements themselves become the highlight of the piece.‎
The frame is realized in moulded polyurethane foam and is placed on metal legs, available in different finishing.‎ Belt in cow-hide in the different colors of the arflex collection.‎

The armchair draws both from the rich lineage of Italian furniture, known for its bold sculptural shapes, as well as from the modernist sensibility, that demands an honest structural expression.‎
