Incorporating a range of lounge chairs, barstools and stools, the Utility collection is (as its name suggests) utilitarian in its references, while also featuring a palette of old-world and luxurious materials. The end result is a set of elegant and versatile pieces that fit seamlessly and gracefully into any environment, from high-end hospitality to residential projects.
