Composed of four irregularly shaped, independent elements,
three polygons and a quadrilateral, on moulded
polypropylene and rubber feet. The elements can be placed
together along the various sides to obtain myriad patterns
with modularity, governed by the laws of plane geometry,
multiplied exponentially. The shapes, without frame and any
rigid support, are modelled by moulding a mixture, protected
by an international patent, of “Gellifoam” and other foams,
some of which are commonly used in aerospace
applications, to ensure a special, almost sensual, softness.
The range also includes two flexible backs, in different sizes,
which can be positioned as required and joined together by
means of two disks of special heat-formed rubber which can
easily be removed for washing. The polyurethane shapes,
pliant thanks to the extra softness of the mixture, are lined
with a special stretch fabric that enables the shape to spring
back. The covers, tight-fitting like a t-shirt, are fitted over the
items and fastened, to adapt to the ergonomic bending of the
foam and “Gellifoam” mixture, by seams along the vertical
sides only of the various elements.
Like a proper suit, the upholstery has been made up in a
range of fabrics designed by Monica Mazzei and produced
exclusively for Edra.
