sculptural ella polycarbonate chair by jacopo foggini for edra




similar to a flower, the ‘ella’ chair by jacopo foggini has a black stem, while the corolla of petals comprises transparent colors and soft green and blue hues as a vivacious and original mix. ‘ella’ — presented at salone del mobile 2015 — is entirely handmade in polycarbonate, and is supported by a pedestal that allows seat rotation. the form varies slightly in back height, width, shape, ‘dust and imperfections’, color and distribution of matter — making each piece unique and precious.

manual intervention is the irreplaceable human contribution that distinguishes and characterizes the one-of-a kind results. the necessary attention to details is the result of manual skills cultivated by the italian company edra with many years of experience. from this attitude come serial products so well crafted as to be unique and unmistakable: sofas and furniture that adapts to many different environments, traditional or contemporary homes, public spaces and museums around the world.
