Bloomy is an armchair that evokes the vegetative beginnings of the flower.
The bud has become a chair, the open flower a lounge chair and the armchair is the flower in full bloom. The BLOOMY system of armchairs is enriched with new components: two sofas with well-defined lines and with a back with a rounded line. Depending on the covering chosen, it takes on new, classic or contemporary connotations. To complete the range, there is a table that can be used in a variety of situations, either to accompany the sofa and armchairs, or standing happily on their own. Injected flame-retardant foam over internal steel frame with elastic webbing; on black polypropylene glides. Swivel base is steel with black Ral 9005 powder coat finish (code 0V6). Bloomy collection covers are removable.
