A range of modern, sophisticated yet reassuring seating elements with an understated feeling of luxury in a vaguely Oriental mood. A new cleanness of subtle lines, of perfect proportions exuding an innate comfort emphasized by taut textiles and pure, neutral colors contrasted with bright colorful splashes of cushions and low tables varnished in plum, emerald green, paprika or lacquer red. Simple and minimal in the normal position; supremely comfortable when the backrest, which has a tilting mechanism, is raised. The chrome-steel or black painted tube legs are reminiscent of the colored wooden sticks used for playing Mikado (or pick-up-sticks, known as Shanghai in Italian). The same motif is repeated in the legs of the low tables with decorated screen-printed or varnished laminate tops that complete the range. They are designed to match and blend with the sofas while maintaining a specific, independent identity.
