Echoes S.H armchair
A small family of seating elements with big personalities calls to mind echoes of other seemingly contrasting times and cultures – Mediterranean and Scandinavian, both rustic and delicate, déjà vu and yet, timeless.
Its construction displays a bold material contrast: the structure is in sleek metal while the seat and backrest are made of fine woven paper or paper rush cord – complex craftsmanship reminiscent of traditional methods and still performed entirely by hand.
A soft optional cushion can be added to the armchair to ensure the utmost comfort.
The design project for the Echoes family of seating grew out of a mature awareness nourished by different ideas and inspirations. The traditional Scandinavian school meets Mediterranean style; rustic and urban styles cross paths. The design of memory is, in any case, living in the present and projected into the future.
The sleek metal structure contrasts with the pliable seat and backrest made of fine woven paper cord or paper rush cord. This seemingly simple process is actually quite complex and still today performed entirely by hand.
A different stylistic interpretation is expressed by the Echoes S.H. armchair that pairs the metal structure with cowhide: a classic, eye-catching combination but one that, thanks to the ergonomic contours of the seat and backrest, also ensures the utmost in comfort.
The Echoes S.H. family includes armchairs with and without armrests that coordinate nicely with matching footstools, chairs and dining chairs, stools and a slender chaise longue. All share the same pure lines and understated proportions that allow these pieces to be equally at home in any room in the house, alone or paired with the sofas in the Flexform collection.
