Lapalma Foil Swivel Chair with 5 Wheels
Slender yet accommodating. Relaxing yet extremely stable. The new FOIL armchair, designed by Francesco Rota, is the outcome of a fusion of opposites. The generous padded seat, offering sheer comfort, emerges from the 4-slanted spoke base on castors, integrates with the enveloping backrest and descends into the highly elegant line of the armrests. With its bold yet delicate profile, FOIL holds the secret to a perfect working day. The ultimate in linearity for decision-making. The ultimate in fluidity for ideas. The ultimate in looking to the future for the easy recycling of its separate components. And last but not least, the ultimate pleasure in getting together around a table with colleagues and friends.
