Cecilia is an armchair that combines research, respect for the environment, sustainability and affective design. After research, we discovered that every day, tons of waste are discarded in the environment. In order to reduce this impact, we workerd on the development of a piece that could reuse some waste materials: wood, leather and fabrics were cleaned and processed to get a new shape. This armchair also can be closed and carried by brass handle, turning into a nomadic piece. To finish, the design reclined and the backrest volumetric were made to offer extremally comfort for the user. Each piece is unique with its marks and scars.
