A modular and comfortable seating system with an elegant design and a modern style. It is characterised by a piping that defines its profile. It is available in different sizes and two depths that can be placed side by side, allowing a wide range of linear and corner solutions, with central elements, elements with an armrest, corner elements, chaise longues and stools that create relaxing or more formal environments. It fits in both residential and hospitality settings.
Straightforward, dreamy and eclectic: her spirit and soul are a combination of the flavours and colours of the south of the world – known, loved and lived – together with the tastes and shapes of the west, rich in traditions, open and constantly on the move. All this leads to her tireless curiosity in search of fabrics and materials, shapes and structures, the present, the past and the future.

Industrial designer of surfaces – in primis and from the beginning – for Abet Laminati. Creator of events in the form of exhibitions and parties all over the world. Someone who doesn’t want to design systematically, to always be a little more curious than the others; who wants to be a citizen of the world, to look and discover; who is a bit of an anthropologist; who doesn’t want to throw away the past but to revive it; who wants to cultivate the East and its spontaneous craftsmanship (as she has come to understand after years of working with craftsmen in the Philippines).
