The Couture Armchair is a fusion of artisanal and industrial techniques.
The stitches represent a topographic map resulting in an organic pattern, simulating the growth in wood. The use of gradient colours for the wood, amplifies the effect of layers used and increases the sensation of unifying hard materials. The result is an armchair with strong personality which holds maximum evidence of artisanal processes. Birch plywood backrest made up of sewn
pieces with polyamide thread.
