Seeking a new shape for a non-upholstered seating element, a lounge chair or a chaise longue, the design blossoms from a “cellular” genesis of petals sewn in triangular shapes, creating ample patterns.

The lightly padded petals feature reversible materials felt and wool fabric; wool fabric and leather which create a supporting cover that is then fixed to a stainlesssteel metal frame.

The cover creates two very different and striking moods: with the petals facing upwards for a more unconventional, feminine version; or facing downward for a deliberately severe, quilted look.

The two sides are available in black and white, or a natural tone matched with a kaleidoscopic patchwork.
