Basil Chair, designed for the italian manufacturer, draws its form from the structural morphology of a basil leaf. In the chair, the central rib serves as not only ornamental but also structural purpose. The chair is made of a fully recyclable thermoplastic polymer composed of 35% recycled materials. The composite was selected for its structural properties, which allow for a more rigid exterior layer and a more flexible inner core. Models are produced with a wide range of structures covering different market purposes, from indoor to outdoor, from domestic to contract.
Basil Chair was introduced during Milan Design Week 2011 and has been awarded with the Interior Innovation Award 2012.
