Lapalma Will Swivel upholstered stool
It is the automotive sector that inspired the new interesting stool launched by lapalma at the Milan Furniture Fair 2016.
The WIL stool, designed by Romano Marcato, has a main feature: an original three legged base of powder-coated metal. The particular tube of the legs has a circular cross-section, clearly visible where the feet are inserted, that becomes triangular towards the seat, providing better support to that in the junction with the pivot, thus underlining the original touch of the stool.
The swiveling seat, which is very comfortable due to its polyurethane foam, can be upholstered with fabric, soft-leather or fake-leather, according to one’s wish. 3 stitches highlight the broad, comfortable seating surface of WIL, which reminds of a steering wheel.
WIL is a further step for lapalma in the field of high seating, whose emblem is the LEM stool by Shin & Tomoko Azumi, which acts as an ambassador for the design signed lapalma throughout the world.
