Entry Description

Inspired on the predominant shapes of the 50’s, the era of
aeronautical dreams when everything was possible; this
design intends to inspire the user or observer to feel that
anything is reachable. The design is a combination of a
dare to be different along with a sophisticated look and
style, with a little twist of the atom punk current.
Shaped with high quality materials, like solid walnut or
maple wood, with its back and seat molded in high density
polyurethane, upholstered in natural leather, stitched with
a distinctive thread, giving a unique touch.
We used the mortise and tenon joints system, with
reinforcement squads, all shaped with state of the art
Italian Machinery.
