Designer: Philippe Nigro
The PROMENADE lounge chair by Philippe Nigro is designed both as a stand alone piece or to complement the sofa collection of the same name, which incorporates its features. The design is distinguished by its strong decorative language inspired by minimalism and by the attention to detail of the Viennese secession, an artistic trend of the last century. Beginning with square cross-section wood processing, used for the first time in 1906 for the “Postsparkasse” series, Philippe Nigro has created a visible structure with contours in canaletto walnut which envelop the large and welcoming chair. The framework is completed by fabric covered panels, lending a distinctive value especially when placed in the center of the room, given the insert of Vienna straw into the upper band, a further detail which emphasizes the side and back of the armchair, as with the sofa. A new approach to softness in refined domestic environments.
