Marco Ferreri reinterprets an icon of Scandinavian design, the classic cockpit seat, and creates a chair of great constructive simplicity with a touch of elegance.

The curved backrest, which extends to form the armrests, gives Nordica a very specific personality, welcoming those who sit in it with just the right comfort.
