Generous dimensions and a soft, reassuring silhouette for the small padded armchair Siena designed by Simone Bonanni for MDF Italia. The excess fabric confers a sense of movement to the surface and highlights the sense of comfort and conviviality. Given its look, volumes and ergonomics, this product is timeless and adapts perfectly to new scenarios. The piece has unique details, which simply mark the high-quality construction and craftsmanship. The double seam on the backrest highlights shape and tension; the comb joints connect the legs to the wood bases, enhancing the care and manual expertise of solid-wood working; an elliptical steel tubing inclined to 45°, a synonymous of technical expertise and advanced production.
