The shape is harmoniously proportioned and uncomplicated with a taut, swift line like a racing-car spoiler. The T-shaped frame that gave its name to this range of padded chairs is the static linchpin of this design. The range includes single, 2-place and 3-place seating without back, or with high or low back. A rigid shell covered with flexible density polyurethane foam gives a soft, compact seat. The back is lowered from above onto special plates. Everything is designed to ensure that the fabric covers are fully removable. While instantly suited to contract furnishings, these products (small sofas, armchairs, and padded benches and stools) are also perfect for contemporary domestic interiors where functions are often combined and transformed. Update 04/2006: This set of padded seats has been enriched with a new stylish element: a leather TT, featuring the prestigious quality of finely crafted upholstery. The seams provide a salient characteristic of this product: they are not only functional elements, they are veritable marks that run down along the midline of the back to distinguish the seats and then reach and - ideally - split in two the base of the seat. The softness of the TT, obtained from a rigid shell covered with foam polyurethane, acquires a new version that releases the product for the widest variety of uses, whether in the household or in the contract sector, while retaining all the practical features that set apart the TTs, all of them with fully removable covers.
