GLI SCACCHI By B&B Italia
Stool / coffee table
The flexible nature of Camaleonda continues and is completed by Gli Scacchi, the chess pieces, a series of accessories designed by Mario Bellini to become additional tables or seats. The three pieces that make up the series are inspired by the game of chess, in particular the queen, the knight and the rook (hence the Italian names Regina, Cavallo, Torre), light and easy to move like on a chessboard.
In the 1971’s original version, Gli Scacchi represented a remarkable technical innovation as they were produced in self-skinning polyurethane foam, a solution which was initially used only by the automotive industry and introduced for the first time in furniture.
The 2020 reissue offers soft covers made of thck leather and calf hide with visible stitching.
The shape of the three elements elaborates on and develops the parallelepipedon, through structures made of soft polyurethane that perfectly synchronize with the dimensions of the Camaleonda.
At the base there is an elegant metallic profile, an element that defines the geometry of the shape in contrast, with the softness of the object.
