Airy Appearance

Light, airy, clearly architectonic in character, WING has a slender metal base raised off the floor. The almost invisible legs seem to make it float in the air. The back, a soft geometric parallelepiped, low and deep, is supported by slender metal parts fastened to the rear of the structure.

Architectonic Character

The back is separated from the seat, accentuating the sense of lightness. Linear or in groupings, ideal for the home but also perfect for contract applications, WING is a versatile project, created for a demanding, sophisticated audience. Also available: the WING chaise longue with wide armrest.
