GEOMETRIC ALLURE AND RETRO-STYLED DESIGN

Designed by
GamFratesi
“Our project started from of a very simple geometric figure, which is the rhombus, and our aim was actually to translate something which is two-dimensional as a drawing into something which is three-dimensional as a furniture. The Romby chair is made with two different elements, which are in balance between each other: the seat and the base in solid wood. For us it was very important the geometric effect of these two parts together. We think that the Romby chair because of its iconic and essential design actually succeeds to transmit a new aesthetic in the home, perfectly fitting into the universe of Porro which is always characterized by minimal lines and great craftmanship”.
Stine Gam, Enrico Fratesi

Geometric allure and retro-styled design are the key elements of the new Romby armchair by GamFratesi, with its abstract charm. The truncated cone base in solid ash wood, natural or black stained, whose flared shape is obtained through slices made with great cabinet-making skills, is connected to a soft and compact padded swivel seat covered in leather and fabric. Perfect in a dining room or in a working environment with a cosy atmosphere, as well as a stand-alone element, Romby is a cocoon armchair with impeccable proportions and workmanship, which embraces the body while leaving it free to move, enveloping it with a feeling of great lightness. A project that fits perfectly into the Porro universe, which has always been characterised by minimalist designs and great craftsmanship.
