VELIS | Garden chair
Upholstered garden chair
New proposals by Mario Ferrarini open the 2017 collection which, after last year’s success, expand the VELIS collection by declining it into two-seat sofa versions with lounge chairs, high single or two-seat stools and benches.
Ideal for a waiting room or office just as in warm domestic environments, the VELIS collection explores and resolves the relation between solid wood and upholstery in the best way, defining a perfect integration between the parts, where one supports the other in a respectful reciprocal balance. With its comfortable and welcoming shapes, the sofa, the lounge chair and the stool are characterised by a slightly curved backrest under tension, a distinctive trait of the collection, and by an airy aspect provoked by the lateral openings that lighten the design.
The perfect mix of aesthetic beauty and multiple functions, the VELIS bench is able to meet the most varied needs thanks to its four variants of different dimensions and heights: stool and bench may be integrated with a useful top in wood, in a refined chromatic meeting that highlights the versatility of the objects, transforming it into a useful support base.
Mario Ferrarini continues his work in the world of seating, Potocco’s strong point, applying his research also to the outdoor environment. This year the VELIS tub chair by Mario Ferrarini studio, part of the company’s flagship collection, is realized in an outdoor version, demonstrating, once again, the versatility that distinguishes the company, who responds to every need. The experience gained by Potocco in the use of weaving gives rise to the new variant with back and armrests woven in “Gassa” rope, combined with an Iroko wooden base.
