Universal collection: sustainability, comfort, elegance.
Universal Collection is the name of the new family of seats designed by Jean-Marie Massaud for MDF Italia, which stands out for its impeccably elegant lines and extraordinary ergonomics.
In the chair or armchair version - with wooden or fully upholstered backrest – the three-dimensional back is the focal point of the seat; it consists of two curved elements pressed from a mechanical mould, then coupled and assembled, with a procedure that echoes the refined savoir-faire of the luthier.
The design takes its name, above all, from the disc of the seat, the beating heart of the piece, designed to accommodate different types of bases and backrests, so lending itself over time to the development of an infinite variety of possible configurations.
Load-bearing shell in tubular metal padded with polyurethane foam. The upholstery covers the backrest completely and is not removable.
Seat comprising foam injection moulded polypropylene shell with polyurethane foam rubber. The upholstery covers the seat completely and is not removable.
