CHOMP | Chair By De Rosso
HPL and Pral® Laminate chair
Chomp Chair is an unusual seat inspired by the animal world with the shape of a cute little monster. With a backrest and seat made up of two sections of laminate that have been cut along one edge to resemble sharp teeth, the Chomp chair playfully imitates a fictional monster that is "ready to bite whoever sits down". Made of HPL and Pral® laminate, it is characterized by a playful symphony of color contrasts and daring combinations. Limited edition.
«Chomp Chair is a scary-cute like the friendliest of friendly monsters. It wants to eat your bum right up because it just loves you so, so very much!»

Limited Edition is a project which was strongly desired by Roberto De Rosso. He fully drew some unpublished items, from the records of his company, adding many others created specifically for the occasion.
An exciting collection, which varies between re-edited or reinterpreted classics and new designs, that has celebrated more than thirty years of creativity and visionary fantasy. The first series consists of seven pieces and some variations, which are certified in limited edition. It involves five creative people from the international scene - architects, designers and artists - who all have different backgrounds and individual paths different, but in perfect balance by nationality, generation and gender. They are united by the exuberant use of colour applied to the philosophy of De Rosso’s language, which varies between Pop-Art quotes, references to the Alchimia movement and the Memphis style.
Amongst other things the family of furnishings covers the areas of the domestic environment, which are perfect in groups as well as individually, with an exhilarating presence. From Martine Bedin’s enigmatic totem bookcase to Richard Hutten’s sculptural seat in five kaleidoscopic variants, to the theme of sideboards and containers interpreted with irony by Paola Navone; from the table covered with allegorical pop graphics of Ugo Nespolo to the zoomorphic shapes of the new pieces by Adam Nathaniel Furman: the hedgehog low table and the monster-chair which is ready to bite whoever sits down. The Limited Editions by De Rosso are dedicated to collectors and design lovers. They constitute an important, out-of-the-ordinary collection, which is unconventional and exclusive, in a perfect union between inventiveness and originality.
