Armchair. Steel frame varnished graphite or matt black. Seat and cushion upholstered with polyurethane, backrest upholstered with self-extinguishing polyurethane foam. Removable fabric or leather cover.
A daily glimpse, a life project together in a new home
The story of Nena is that of a dynamic iconic armchair, recognisable by the contrast between the minimal structure and the comfortable and generous seat size. An object born from an investigation into comfort, which reinterprets the typical female characteristics of balance, softness and dynamism.
Study of the details: removable cover in leather or fabric thanks to the zip concealed by a rouche that outlines the elegant roundness of the backrest. Nena relays the comfort of an armchair into a small table armchair, ideal for the home and relaxation, but also for a work environment or restaurant, continually creating new narratives
