Designed by Roberto Barbieri, 1999
Polished aluminum alloy feet. Seat back and armrests upholstered in polyurethane. Removable cover in fabric.
Designed for those who love comfort and modernity, intended to be an evergreen, the Michel seating system mirrors the design philosophy of its designer who shows a preference for simple shapes – pure and elegant in their linear form without any additional decoration to underscore the concept of function. The many elements can create both formal and social configurations in an extensive range of sizes.
Charlotte by Antonio Citterio is a tribute to lightness. The shell is completely covered, but the frame profile is visible on the chair side, thus highlighting the line of the seat. The cover is in raw cut full grain leather.
The design allows both an erect and a more relaxed position by resting on one of the wings of the armrest. The formal balance results from the constant thickness of the body and by the profile of the seat, which is sinuous at the top and ends in the light steel frame. Its removable covers have metal zips on the back, which becomes a decorative motif.
