A seating system comprising of several elements, Michel Effe is an evolution of Michel that stands out for its essential style. This variety in the product range, available in two depths, makes it possible to organise different types of in-line and modular compositions, from formal to casual. From the point of view of stye, it features a rigorous design in the base-frame and in the seat with a single cushion. More essential than its predecessors yet no less comfortable, in Michel Effe everything superfluous has been removed.


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.
