Designer: Frank Rettenbacher
The technical invention from last year, that led the designer to develop together with Zanotta the June chair – whose secret brilliantly resolved the flexibility between the back and the seat – has opened the way to the design of the new armchair Judy.
“It was a natural evolution to transfer my gained knowledge and experience to a larger scale” Rettenbacher says, proceeding in the development of the aesthetic lightweight. Surprisingly the seat has a graphic outline, with extended armrests, to protect like a shell and at the same time guarantee a comfortable and reclined position. “By experimenting with a varying thickness of plywood we found the perfect flexibility for the back rest to adapt to your body”.
Then you may focus on choosing the wood finishes for the back as well as the colour of the steel legs and on experiencing chromatic matchings of beautiful fabrics and leathers.
