Echoes Stool By Flexform
Designed by Christophe Pillet for Flexform
A small family of seating elements with big personalities calls to mind echoes of other seemingly contrasting times and cultures – Mediterranean and Scandinavian, both rustic and delicate, déjà vu and yet, timeless.
Its construction displays a bold material contrast: the structure is in sleek metal while the seat and backrest are made of fine woven paper or paper rush cord – complex craftsmanship reminiscent of traditional methods and still performed entirely by hand.
A soft optional cushion can be added to the armchair to ensure the utmost comfort.
