Cecilia is an armchair that combines research, respect for the environment, sustainability, and effective design. As we know, tons of waste is discarded in the environment every day. To tackle this problem, we worked on developing a piece of furniture that reuses waste materials: wood, leather, and fabrics were cleaned and processed, giving them a new life. This armchair can also be folded and carried by the brass handle located under the seat, turning into a nomadic piece. The generously cushioned backrest offers users a high level of comfort. Each piece has its natural marks and scars, giving it a unique and special character.
