PALA | Footstool
Footstool / coffee table
Pala is a fully upholstered armchair on a pedestal designed by Italian designer Luca Nichetto. It is Nichetto’s first design for Artifort. The design follows the shape of a human body and combines Artifort’s heritage with a contemporary approach.
‘Before I start a new project, I look into the existing collection of a brand’, Nichetto explains.
‘From the designs of Pierre Paulin and Geoffrey D. Harcourt to Patrick Norguet, I noticed an essential characteristic of all armchairs: they could all be divided into three sections such as seat, back and head rest. That’s where the inspiration started. I researched what kind of posture our body engages when completely immersed into a relaxed environment. With Pala, I created an armchair, which reflects that shape. It represents the imprint of a human body. ’
This modern and characteristic armchair allows you to drift away from today’s tensions. It’s a place to unwind and get comfortable at home, but also works well at restaurants, hotels and lounges. It can be complimented with an ottoman or standalone by itself.
The Pala armchair and matching pouf are entirely upholstered. The internal solid wire frame is covered with moulded foam. The armchair is available with a fixed or rotatable base.
