Designed for indoor environments in 2020, Torii Nest migrates to open-air living spaces, bringing to life an entire family of seats.
With structural details linked to Japanese tradition, the chairs and sofas play with round edged volumes, thin profiles and the apparent formal simplicity of an extremely intricate design.
The painted tubular steel frame of the woven cord backrest in the shades Ecru, Dark Brown and Oil Green sports a design inspired by cane, but with a larger mesh that lets light and air through. It sits on a base in natural teak or Dark Brown mahogany, supported by painted aluminium legs with a shiny, Bronze-coloured, anti-touch finish.
The ethereal appearance of these furnishing pieces dialogues harmoniously with their extreme materiality: the backrest, an enveloping nest, embraces and encloses the soft cushions resting on a solid natural teak frame. A succession of materials with a strong tactile impact and a welcoming feel, as if these sofas were primarily places in which to let go and relax. A design that is at times romantic and at times contemporary, thanks to its compact proportions, it easily fits into the decor on metropolitan terraces and in hospitality settings, satisfying both the most classic and the most modern aesthetic tastes.
