The Fil Noir chairs take their name from thread – an unmistakable sign of continuity. The thread, or tube, that actually makes up the body and substance of the chair – not only outlines its silhouette, but also supports and envelops it. A thread that expresses a core decision in the choice of material. Metal tubing painted matt black. A choice of absolute austerity that is softened by the rings with polished Gold finish that set off the corners of the chair, adding a note of decorative contrast to the stark formality of the structure.
How to harmoniously blend form and function is the quest that led to the creation of a backrest with an enveloping shape and a comfortable seat, both with metal structure encased in polyurethane foam. The internal cushion has a structure in flexible thermoformed material and polyurethane foam that lends added comfort to the backrest.
Such painstaking construction details confirm the high degree of tailoring know-how achieved by the company over time and strengthen the perception of a product known for its high level of craftsmanship.
