Chair with armrests in steel frame, 4 legs. Seat and back in moulded steel. Cataphoresis treatment.
The origin of Stripes comes from the combination of three words: contemporary, memory and functionality. In fact, while recalling shapes from the past, Stripes reinterprets them in a modern key, creating a chair that fits into public areas and homes, for indoor and outdoor use. Stripes is also technology: the seat and back are made from a single laser-cut sheet. The cuts create a “stripe” effect across the entire surface, giving greater flexibility and ergonomics, while allowing perfect drainage of water in the event of exposure to weather. The load-bearing frame is made from bent tubes whose small diameter guarantees the resistance required for its intense use, while providing the light weight required for ease of movement and stacking. Use of a single metal gives it three advantages: ease of disposal, ease of maintenance and cleaning, and the complete fire resistance of the product.
