The family shares the same design of the slender and retro-styled leg but the elements differ in terms of general shape.
Albert maintains the 1900-inspired armrests and classic lines reinterpreted by the aesthetics of the Fifties. A decorative front element runs along its entire length and draws the armrest: made of solid wood, it is first covered and then fixed with nails to the main structure.
Ile, instead, is closer to the aesthetics of the Sixties. Inspired by classic armchairs and characterised by the hollow shape of its back, it reframes these elements according to the versatility of the forms of the Sixties.
A mohair wool velvet, in vibrant colours with shimmering reflections – from Mink to Cobalt, from Blue Ocean to Titanium – is the upholstery that best enhances the two pieces.
