Folio is an exciting and representative range of chairs. They derive their appeal on the one hand from the contrast between the heaviness of the angular cube and the curving cushion elements Р and on the other from the visual and functional lightness that arises from the four castor-mounted legs of chromiumplated tubular steel.
Folio follows disciplined architectonic forms, but never appears static. The characteristic, elegantly restrained design in combination with clear functionality and seating comfort fulfils all the requirements a versatile chair must meet. The well-proportioned design of the cushions is part of the style language of the architecture of Folio Р and has given the chair its name: "Й a cushion spread over the chair like a leaf". The corpus is finished in satin matt varnish, either in the same colour as the cushion cover or in contrasting shades. The seat and back cushions and the arm rest are representatively covered in haptically pleasing leather. Based on the chair architecture, the concept is also developed with the same formal logic into an easy chair Р either as a one- or two-seater, supplemented by an occasional table. With Folio, the Italian designer Cini Boeri has created a high-quality item of chair furniture, which makes no compromises and is therefore ideally combinable with other PHILIP Mљbelmanufaktur furniture Р e.g. with the other programmes designed by Cini Boeri: Prisma, Ypsilon or me.
A chair is also a rest for the eye. The contrasts of the structure Р a voluminous corpus in satin matt finish placed on four slender, chromium-plated legs Р give the chair its individual excitement. The character of the various surfaces is an uncompromising expression of reduced design. Building on this distinctive clarity, the combination of precise workmanship and finely finished surfaces creates a grace that gives the item its characteristic nobility. And another typical feature: without any hint of arbitrariness, the severe straight lines of the structure are broken where the user has contact with the chair Р with the comfortable leather cushion elements laid attractively over the corpus. The dimensions and proportions of this chair leave room for freedom of movement. This mobility of sitting is accompanied, thanks to the castors, by mobility within the room. A chair with a distinction of its own Р comfortable and practical.
