Salone Del Mobile 2019
At this year’s edition of Salone del Mobile, Manutti introduces a new design collection in collaboration with Milanese design studio Metrica.
The concept fuses traditional aesthetics with modern elements. Lightness, comfort and a strong sober character are the foundation of its design. The cast legs give lightness and character to the whole structure, while the appealing softness of the cushions are an invitation to slow down and relax.
The new collection includes both fixed as modular sofas, offering infinite setting possibilities.
Following the success of Solid Chair by Lionel Doyen, Manutti presents an extension to the collection with a stool and counter stools in natural teak as in brushed teak nero. The plush seating is nothing but luxurious elegance that moulds itself to your body. According to Lionel Doyen design is a quest to find the perfect balance between technological innovation and the authenticity of craftsmanship. That balance manifests itself in the entire Solid collection.
