Designed for those who love comfort and timeless modernity, the Michel seating system mirrors the design philosophy of its author, who shows a preference for simple shapes – pure and elegant in their linear form, without any additional decoration to underscore the concept of function. Its several elements create both formal and relaxed, in-line and modular configurations in an extensive range of sizes. A distinctive features is the aluminium frame, available in various finishes.
The elegant contemporary style of Michel takes on more classic tones in Michel Club, due to the differently proportioned seat cushion and base, and more a rigorous style in Michel Effe.
This variety in the product range makes it possible to organise different types and methods of use, from formal to casual. A common denominator of the three seating systems is the wide variety of elements that make it possible to interpret the living space with extreme flexibility: 34 linear and modular elements and five ottomans.
