Armchair with anodized or powder coated aluminium frame, 4 legs Polypropylene seat and back.
Maré is created from the combination of two different materials never before used together in this way: polypropylene for the seat and back with aluminium for the tubular structure. Together they form a solid construction that makes the one indispensable to the other, linked by a single structural shape (registered model) giving a fully recyclable product. The essential and refined design, which goes beyond fashion or passing trends, makes Maré a versatile product that meets the different European and international aesthetic requirements for outdoor use.
One of the first graduates in “esthétique industrielle” at the ENSAD in Paris with a thesis on plastics, he was a pioneer in experimentation on the different materials and contamination between technologies, which have become distinctive aspects of his work. At the beginning of the seventies, he’s perfected the first ski-boot in thermoplastic material completely recyclable, subsequently commercialized by the Italian firm Caber. Today, thanks to his eclecticism, he’s a consultant for a wide range of industry companies. Awarded 4 times with the Compasso d’Oro by ADI, the Industrial Design Association, (1994, 2001, 2008 e 2014) his work has won many international design awards over the years.
