I visited Rossetto in Padua.They showed me a new foam
a hard-foam with a B1 certification-It is flexible and could be produced in every colour !
POLSTRONG Density 600 kg/m3
It is a rigid structural polyurethane. It has brought a big innovation, going beyond the thickness limits imposed by a traditional metallic structure.
It is therefore possible to make structures (inserts) with thin thicknesses, but very resistant at the same time. These can be then covered with fabric or moulded over with Polflex or Freeform
They ask me for a design for this new material- But they are first of all a supplier and not a distributor or a brand. I supposed to realise a cantilever chait with only one column.
I call it the „callita chair“ because of the smooth lines …
it is stackable the proposal has different types as a upholstered version too with a textile membran always with this comfortabel 0,5 armrest.I think You could define it as a cantilever chair – but a new kind of –
At Rossetto they build up a one to one prototype now. So we could take seat in about three weeks, if You like. Would You try it ?
