Il Prugnolo


The design of the backrest is suggested by the shape of a Calla or Lily of the Nile. This delicate flower has an enveloping structure and the long, funnel-shaped spathe suggests a different use. This was the idea that inspired the study and design of a comfortable and ergonomic armchair. The base, made with slender metal strips that highlight the “corolla” of the seat, makes a balanced, graceful, and harmonious whole.
