Filinea by Antonino Sciortino

The futuristic Filinea armchair fuses natural and technological qualities. It takes its cue from euphorbia tirucalli trees and is made of round, extremely slender steel bars.

The plants are very common in the South of Italy and their intricately arrayed branches inspired a seemingly impossible design: intersecting geometric lines that create an armchair with an airy outline. An extremely light seat made by expert hands from round steel bars that are just a few millimetres thick. It feels like you are floating in the air when you sit on the tangled yet tidy framework.

Product Overview
The original idea for the Filinea armchair came from the distinctive appearance of euphorbia tirucalli trees, which are very widespread in the South of Italy. They are a particularly common sight in the Sicilian homeland of designer Antonino Sciortino, who has always had close ties to his roots. The thin, intricately arrayed branches of the plants have been
recreated in a seemingly impossible design. Tangled geometrical shapes criss-cross to create the ethereal chair.

Production process
Working with round steel bars that are just a few millimetres thick requires great technical prowess. The designer has previously used the approach in other projects, but never on this scale. LaCividina’s craft experts created the individual outlines then joined them together at different heights to make them look like a single piece with one thread that had been twisted over and over again. It feels like you are floating on air when you sit on the ultralight seat.
