Abuela is a complete collection of chairs and stools, with soft and elegant lines, functional and versatile.
The solid beech wood structure, together with the clean design and the uniqueness of the details, create a winning combination for the most sought-after environments. Delicate details made of technopolymer recall the joints of wood in the outdoor version of Abuela. The backrest with wraparound lines, with the options of comfortable armrests or padded and upholstered cushion, make it original for countless uses.
