Fjord is a collection of contract seatings: the Relax armchair, small armchairs, stools and pouffes.

The first is an armchair, archetypal of relax, given its soft supporting and comfortable form, the high back, arm and seating adapt to the body, fitting around it, following its contours and anticipating its movements. The essential and light frame takes shape thanks to the use of new materials and new production technologies, while the visible stitching emphasises contemporaneity.

The armchairs are objects of effective daily use, however, they maintain the feature of comfort and can be used in any public area.
