Airy, with constructive details linked to Japanese tradition, the Torii modular seats play with round edged volumes, thin profiles and the apparent formal simplicity of an extremely detailed design.
The metal structure of the legs of the seats and tables is Nendo’s nod to the image of the “torii”, the entrance gate to Shinto shrines in Japan. With an interlocking game, the horizontal elements are laid on the vertical supports, ensuring a sophisticated visual lightness that accommodates the padded volume, characterised by couture craftsmanship.
The slim backrest features vertical quilting and a piping running along the perimeter of the cushioning, underlining the couture quality of the craftsmanship. The eco-leather and eco-nubuck piping is in a slightly contrasting colour, but in the same shade as the fabric, if combined with a textile covering, whereas the leather versions come in the same shade when combined with leather upholstery. All the upholstered elements of the system can be customised by choosing the covering: 100% fabric or leather, or in fabric with a leather base.
The extension of the base of some elements features a top in Calacatta or Stone Grey marble with a matt polyester lacquer finish, crafted with a careful study of its proportions, thickness and structural details so that it blends seamlessly into the seat, also from an aesthetic point of view.
