The Bambola armchair is part of Le Bambole series, originally designed in 1972, awarded with the Compasso d’Oro in 1979. Icon of timeless contemporaneity and one of the most effective expressions of Made in Italy excellence combining research and creative flair, Le Bambole have provided a very personal answer to the theme of seats. What makes them special is the apparent absence of a load bearing structure, the extreme naturalness of the shape, and the combination of comfort, softness and elasticity that their appearance conveys. Where the original construction was based on a metal structure embedded in polyurethane, now the materials used are of the latest generation, starting from recycled polyethylene gives structure. A sustainable project thanks to the choice of materials and the construction method, that allows the components of Le Bambole to be completely disassembled and therefore easily recyclable.
Designed by Antonio Citterio, 2022
Antonio Citterio has designed a collection that represents the expression of a modern language, with clear references to the Knoll tradition of classic design. Particular emphasis has been placed on sustainability, with the use of natural materials like wood and marble.
The seating family Klismos by Knoll offers an original combination of materials and dynamic, slender forms. The seats and backs are in natural cotton cord woven on an oak wood structure. The back can be also in wood. Elegant optional leather cushions can be added to the seat for greater comfort.
The frame is in natural or black oak. Interwoven cotton cord in natural or black colour to match the colour of the structure. The cushion is optional, in natural colour leather and in black colour leather. The padding of the optional cushions is in natural material of vegetable origin.
Available in black or natural oak. The cushion is avaible in black leather or natural leather.
Aiko is a system of sideboards with clean lines and sophisticated details. Jean-Marie Massaud’s intuition has given life to a project that is a true compendium of Poliform’s know-how. Inspired by ancient sideboards, the cupboards are suspended on a base with feet, in line with the doors with shaped profiles. Attention to detail is key: from shelves that appear to be floating inside the volume thanks to the integrated shelf supports to the sophisticated lighting with; from the central foot that becomes an aesthetic feature to the hinge, developed ad hoc, that ends in a precious external metal plaque. The door finishes are also outstanding: in addition to the classic wood, there is a wicker-effect wood and a laminated glass version with a linen-effect fabric interior.
