The frame of the chair consists of two parallel wooden legs that are joined by a wooden crib-like structure. This crib holds the padded upholstery and meets in two triangular points at the arms.
"The skeleton, traditionally hidden inside the upholstery, is deliberately exposed to showcase the craftsmanship and premium timber," said Nichetto.
The Danish-oiled frame is made of either American black walnut or European ash and the upholstery is available in a range of fabrics, covering the harder outer shell and soft padded cushions inside.
"The project takes its name both from the concept of balancing skilfully hand-crafted wood with complementary materials at a ratio of 50/50," said Nichetto. "From the idea of designing a collection that creates a whole environment in the spirit of the great architects of the 1950s.
The collection was launched during Stockholm Design Week, which took place last week.
