  • What’s special Its oriental inspiration instantly creates a touch of magic and sophistication, equally versatile. This chair undoubtedly tales centre stage, as its minimalist design and refined materials add character to any space, whether inside and outside.
  • How is it made Its frame is alternatively in tubular metal or wood, enhanced by a woven decoration in either rope or leather that covers the armrests and the backrest too. The seat is upholstered in either leather or fabric, although this version is available with a vast range of material combinations (fabric, leather, wood and metal), manufactured according to a diverse range of techniques, whether it’s the frame or the upholstery, equally relevant for the outdoor chair.
