The Cutter chair is characterised by a bold aesthetic. The back of the chair is slashed by a cut, as a tribute to the great artist Lucio Fontana: not just an aesthetic choice, but a detail generating a distinctive type of seating. Functional and comfortable in a frontal position, the backrest’s top sections move independently, making it also possible to sit sideways. Thus, users can chat with the person seated next to them, sitting informally while leaning on one side with an arm placed around the backrest. The upholstery and cover fully envelop the chair in thick full grain leather, creating an ideal combination of softness and rigour, underlined by saddle stitching. The central slash reveals an interior in refined Saffiano leather.
“Sometimes you need to make a cut! ... Even when it comes to a chair ... now it is more comfortable than ever thanks to the same gesture with which Lucio Fontana revolutionized the art history.”
