Wool easy chair with armrests
Simple geometric forms matched with the richness of the materials characterize the style of Nicola Gallizia, a Milanese designer with whom Porro began to collaborate for the 2019 collection. The small Lullaby lounge chair, with its unusual configuration and inclination, evokes the comfort and the act of cradling. Its immediate and pleasant-sounding name is almost onomatopoeic: the “L” recalls the shape of the wooden legs, while “U” identifies the couch on the floor plan, in addition to recall a rocking motion. Small object of desire with an off-plan shape that captures the gaze despite its small dimensions. Lullaby reveals sophisticated details behind its apparent simplicity, such as the small supporting foot in champagne painted metal, the ash solid structure and the covering in soft light blue fabric. This is a particular homage by Porro and the designer to the Bauhaus and its diktat of reconciling functionalism and formal purism, in an ideal fusion of artisanal artistic creation and industrial production.
