Aesthetic refinement and environmental compatibility find a meeting point thanks to a careful functional study, combined with research of materials and eco-friendly construction methods. The research process was focused on the quality of life of the objects we use in harmony with the concept C2C. The objective was to create a product multifunctional, easy to use, long-lived and to become fond of.
The challenge was in the relation between form and function. I wanted to create an elegant and useful armchair to grow fond of. An ecosustainable chair realized with recycled or eco-friendly materials which has a long and variable life.
