PIGRECO

The Pigreco series designed by Luca Scacchetti comprises seating, armchairs, and sofas that appear to be flying, or suspended. It can remain linear, or turn corners to follow the walls, and can include segments. The metallic supports - shaped as the ancient greek letter π - are separated from the seating to maintain this strong, yet extremely light, representative image, underlined by the exceptional leather and saddle leather materials.

Technical Info

The frame of the platform consists of two poplar haertwood panels fixed together. On the lower panel, covered externally with saddle leather, are fixed elastic polypropylene and natural latex belts of 5 cm wide at 80% elasticity, interlaced together at 90°; in this way the seat webbing is guaranteed. On the upper panel is glued a sheet of resilient, CFC-free polyurethane foam (density 35 kg/m3) covered with polyester wadding and fabric or leather.
