Pluvia Dining Armchair by Ethimo
Scattered on sidewalks or crowding Piazzas, woven plastic chairs were an iconic element in the Italy of the ‘80s.
For Pluvia, the outdoor stackable chair designed for Ethimo, Luca Nichetto returned to that image, rethinking it in a contemporary version.
Pluvia features an elegant structure developed through the rounded lines of the aluminium frame and the soft curves of the woven backrest in synthetic fibre.
The juxtaposition of materials ensure stability enhancing the comfort, while a combination of colours and textures makes Pluvia a versatile chair for indoor or out.
Frame powdercoated in Aluminium Warm White.
Woven shell in Natwick Tight Weave.
660mm W x 545mm D x 800mm H

About the designer
In 2006 Luca Nichetto founded a multidisciplinary design studio in Venice, Italy, which specialised in industrial design, product design and design consultancy. From the very beginning, this studio collaborated with a number of different brands and organisations, quickly expanding its influence far beyond Venice and Italy’s borders. Five years later, in 2011, Nichetto opened a second studio in Stockholm, Sweden. This practice was founded in response to an ever growing number of requests for collaboration from international companies, with the studio’s work also broadening out from its initial focus on designed objects. Nichetto Studio has since expanded into areas such as interior design and architecture.
Today, Nichetto Studio works with a variety of brands and clients from all around the world, and its expertise is sought out across all design disciplines. A deep passion for, and knowledge of, industrial and craft manufacturing processes runs through every aspect of the studio’s work. Nichetto Studio’s projects abound in carefully selected cultural references and a keen attention to detail. The practice’s unique position within both Scandinavian and Italian design culture has given Nichetto Studio worldwide recognition. Appreciation of its work extends far beyond the confines of the design industry.
