'Gaffa' by Alfredo Häberli for Alias

After the takeover of the majority shareholding by the Managing Director Renato Stauffacher and other investors the Italian manufacturer Alias left Poltrona Frau and invited to their showroom during this year’s Salone del Mobile.

One of the novelties is this new, pretty spacy and extremly comfortable upholstery family ‘Gaffa’ by Swiss designer Alfredo Häberli. It is composed of a dining armchair, a lounge armchair and an ottoman, all upholstered in fullgrain leather or Kvadrat® Divina fabric.

Unfortunatly the purity of its shape doesn’t go along with its rather complex construction: The structure is made from polyurethane foam with metal inserts, elastic belts and thin padding to keep comfort and flexibility. Two tiny wheels under the legs in the front make it easy to move the chairs.
