Philippe Nigro, 2015


This soft and inviting chair was inspired by a vintage armchair designer Philippe Nigro found during his visit to L’Albereta Relais & Chateau in Italy, a hotel furnished by manufacturer De Padova. Albereta is a compact fumoir that Nigro describes as having “exaggerated ears.” The chair has the unique ability to exude the welcoming appearance of a wing chair in the compact body of a narrow club. This makes it an ideal piece for environments where space is at a premium, such as city apartments, small libraries, and boutique hotels.
