Honest, tenacious, stubborn comfort
Light and welcoming in shape and character, Mafalda brings together three conceptually distinct components to form a single body: seat, shell and wood base. The result is a distinctive, almost humorous, character. The name is deliberately borrowed from a cartoon character loved for her outgoing personality and no-nonsense language. The parallels between the two Mafaldas are obvious. In her spontaneity Mafalda expresses, with a very light touch, the idea of a project which takes into account the life-cycle of a project. Mafalda…” is only six years old but she cares about the world”….
Injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam over internal steel frame. Base is oak. Mafalda covers are not removable. Covers available in two versions:
a) fabric or leather over polyurethane foam with horizontal stitching.
b) fabric or leather without stitching.
