Eclectic and elegant, alluring and charismatic: Calatea, the armchair designed for Pianca by Cristina Celestino, is the synthesis of an exploration of forms that investigates the out-of-scale proportions of simple, primitive elements like leaves. The organic volumes and richness of the elegantly stylish details are inspired by the extraordinary qualities of the eponymous plant native to South America, which stimulates the senses on many different levels.
The design is structured around the dialogue between botany and ergonomics, interpreted through a bold, enveloping and comfortable design featuring bright, vivid colours drawn from the plant’s own amazing natural palette.
Sinking into the embrace of nature, allowing yourself to be enveloped by the beauty of a secret garden: this is Calatea’s delicate, evocative invitation.
