Working closely with Roberti Rattan srl, has been the key to a successful project, starting from the presentation of the first ideas to enjoying the journey to the final result. The design has been approached from various points of view, technical, formal and emotional. The design team developed a brief of objectives based on a previous detailed analysis of the requirements of the project, responding to the dreams of the customer. The client asked for designing a scenographic relaxing and romantic furniture element inspired by nature, so it was easy to let imagination fly and swing till the final result.
The main creative challenge was to realize a very solid structure that appears light and float.
