The big news for 2017 is the new collection of CELINE armchairs designed by Jader Almeida, presented for the first time to the international market.
The frame and back are made of solid wood (black walnut or oak, though other essences like beech can also be used on request) and the padded seat is upholstered in matt black leather or fabric.
The Celine lounge chair concept is based on the idea of “arms open wide”. Celine immediately establishes a visual and tactile rapport with people. Its organic shapes are drawn out of the wood and are a natural fit for the human body. The seat follows a sculptural design, as the wooden frame merges smoothly with the upholstery of the seat.
The key characteristic is elegance, born of perfect proportions. As one observes the design, one notices the continuous lines that extend from the back to the base, with intersections and solutions that flow in perfect harmony. The resulting object is a poetic combination of organic and fluid lines that capture the attention and reveal endless plays of light and shadow, but most of all, extend an invitation to experience total comfort.
Jader Almeida comments on the Celine collection: “We based our new collection on the idea of continuity. In every new collection, we consider an element we had never addressed before, but we still maintain a very coherent formal line of thought. Our products bear lasting value, with no frivolous aesthetics as an end in itself. They naturally withstand the test of time, so that the impact they may have in establishing style and taste trends today will still be recognised in the future and continue to be very contemporary.”
