The ISABEL family – sofa, armchairs and smaller chairs – is now enhanced by a new item: the bed.
A linear, impressive creation, thanks to the rich warmth of the headboard and base, entirely covered in cowhide. ISABEL is a lavish product, entirely covered in cowhide, including the legs. It has terse, essential lines that entrust much of the expressive impact of the design to the precious materials.
“The project includes a family of products marked by the choice and use of noble materials like cowhide and leather, crafted with great attention to detail. The collection expresses absolute values of design and elegance through the ability to dialogue with and interpret the path of design. The purity of the materials and forms make these objects almost museum pieces, which silently dance in the void, tempting the observer to use them.” Carlo Colombo
