Light and welcoming in shape and character, Mafalda brings together three conceptually distinct components to form a single body: seat, shell and wood base. The result is a distinctive, almost humourous, character. The name is deliberately borrowed from a cartoon character loved for her outgoing personality and no-nonsense language. The parallels between the two Mafaldas are obvious. In her spontaneity Mafalda expresses, with a very light touch, the idea of a project which takes into account the life-cycle of a project. Mafalda…” is only six years old but she cares about the world”….
