Poltrona Nani / Chair

Poltrona Nani
Poltrona Nani

The Nani Chair was conceived to ease production, storage, transport and the recycling of materials. The screwless structure is tied up by wedges that guarantee its security and allow the product to arrive to customers inside flat packaging. The pre-assembled sides and the pieces that put them together are fixed by the wedges. The straps which support the seat and back cushions are made of recycled truck canvas. The cushions may be made out either of burlap coffee bags or truck canvas. The fact that all pieces of the chair structure are 20mm thick, optimize the production and reduce final costs. Wood: Reforestation eucalyptus and ipê.
