The chair is composed of a softly padded textile folded around a lightweight CNC-shaped steel frame with integrated support straps.

The stretchy fabric is custom made by Innofa and is secured in place with a series of zips and two fastenings at the front.

Talma was presented by Moroso at the Salone Internazionale Mobile in Milan last month, where the brand also launched a family of chairs influenced by the shape of a hood.
