NEWSLETTER COMPASSO D’RO 2008
In june 2008 the R606 UNO chair has been awarded the XXI Compasso d’Oro ADI.
UNO is a stacking chair, elementary and essentially shaped.
The novelty lies in the material and the injection process to produce R606 UNO: a “skin” becomes a unique body together with an inner softer support, with a density and a specific weight of its own. The inner structure is made of high-resistance steel.
The project is intentionally focused on the material rather than on the form: the idea of hardness and rigidity as communicated by the chair at first sight is then surprisingly denied by the softness and flexibility feeling offered when sitting on it (which also give the product an outstanding ergonomics): a chair that makes us smile ironically at our prejudice. Colours, as well as shape, are essential: yellow, red, white, black.
