Design Matteo Nunziati

Natevo Collection
The Arno armchair combines the simple lightweight curved metal structure with the exclusive luxury of the punched woven leather of the backrest.

The manufacturing procedure was borrowed from traditional techniques and is in complete contrast with the contemporary shape – the result is an extremely stylish article. Every detail has been studied and executed to ensure maximum comfort: the leather inserts on the armrests, the softness of the padded seating.

This armchair has a frame in matt burnished metal and the seat has been upholstered with removable covers in fabric or leather. The backrest, like the frame, is trimmed in coated metal and covered with woven leather. Details of the leather armrests in the same colour as the backrest.

The common feature of the armchair and the lamps Arno designed for Natevo is the use of leather in the manufacture – processed with a modern-day version of the tanning typical of the ancient Florentine traditions. The River Arno runs through the city of Florence, hence the collection’s name. In Medieval times, the hides were left to soak and soften in the river before the tanning procedures continued. I wanted to combine tradition and modernity with a contemporary language that would reflect the connections to the past.
