Designer Philippe Starck
Defined by Philippe Starck as “a lifestyle collection of relaxed elegance”, Fenc-e Nature sees the designer continue on his joint mission with Cassina to revolutionise our concept of the classic sofa, using high-quality cutting-edge materials that respect the environment. The armchair has organic forms – like the die-cast aluminium base – and textural elements that celebrate its affinity with the environment, like the natural-looking solid teak armrest with sanded finish. The backrest, with frame in painted AISI 304 stainless steel, is available in hand-woven rope with an exclusive design or in natural untreated willow, used here for the first time. The outstanding comfort of the armchair is guaranteed by the generous seat and backrest cushions with padding in SoloSoff©, a blown polyester fibre and memory foam-based product, and the reclining backrest that can be set in two different positions thanks to a manual mechanism inspired by Asian architecture: a supporting rod in solid teak, processed to look like a branch, held in place by two wooden nails. The collection is completed by a two- and three-seater sofa and a side table in two different heights.
