Armadillo is a timeless piece that encloses itself the essence of art as mimesis: an object whose repetition of the padded elements recall the pattern of the animal’s shell of which it bears the name. A chaise-longue with a hanging seat, a brilliant chef-d’ouvre of 1969, characterized by a seducing synthesis between the handicraft of the leather elements and the technicality of the supporting frame. The seat, made up of a series of soft cushions, creates an interesting chromatic effect given by the alternation of colors between the superior and the inferior parts of the padded element cover. The curved metal tubular structure is available in different lacquered and anodized finishes. Materials as per finishing data sheet.
