‘Nordica’ chair by Marco Ferreri for Billiani

An Italian, family-run furniture brand Billiani has recently released this simple, solid wood chair designed by architect and designer Marco Ferreri. A modern, pared-down reinterpretation of the classic tub chair, ‘Nordica’ features curved, semi-circle backrest whose fluid form is juxtaposed with the straight lines of its seat and base. The design has been developed in beech wood and is available in variety of finishes and with an optional upholstery.

More about the design:

 

‘Four uprights support the seat and join the two sled bases to the wrap-round back. Ever interested in sober, essential, long-lasting design, the Ligurian architect Marco Ferreri has created an enveloping seat whose armrests and backrest flow into one another seamlessly, forming a perfect semi-circular line. The impression of fluidity and compactness is complemented by the smooth prismatic geometry of the refined legs joining with the armrests and the floor-level stretchers.’
