PROFILE

PROFILE chair is a super lightweight, comfortable, classic and elegant with a surprising inner-working and construction system. It consists mainly of air, natural fibre and wood.

Thanks to the use of very lightweight natural fibre composite (NCF) tubes, a delicate construction was achieved. The tubes are wound of soaked cotton – a high-tech process that is also used in the manufacture of sports equipment. The chair is almost entirely hollow; only the points of intersection of the structure are reinforced by connectors made of solid wood and aluminium to give the chair maximum sturdiness. Such inner-working has allowed the minimal and pure connection details usually achieved with metal tubing. The tubes are sheathed with a very thin ash veneer and capped with feet made of natural rubber.

In spite of its technically sophisticated and innovative construction, PROFILE is simple, consisting of thoughtfully pure and minimal lines, portraying a strong yet comforting character.

PROFILE is stackable and suited to home or collectivity uses, available in 6 colour ways. PROFILE is GS certified.
