Design by Lievore Altherr, 2017
A simple gesture, a sensuous feel. The fluid form of Cila was inspired by the image of layers of cloth enveloping the body. Its silhouette of smooth lines retains a graphic character from its distinctive curve –– the most essential symbol of shelter. Like being protected, like being held.
The armchair offering gives extra comfort and function to Cila’s dynamic form. The new shell in polypropylene can be combined with all the existing bases of the Cila collection (steel 4-leg base, steel sled base, wooden 4-leg base, aluminum trestle base with or without castors) for diverse configurations. The chair is available in the same 5 color finishes—as Cila without armrests—and with optional upholstery, making it an easy complement to other products in the collection. An optional seat cushion in a range of colors lends greater plushness to the supportive form.
