Shapes, akin to scents, possess the power to encapsulate and evoke memories. By unveiling emotions hidden beneath the surface, they expose lines that feel familiar even if unseen before. This essence defines the Cadrea collection. Much like the evocative Madeleine de Proust, it embraces the iconic form of a bistro chair, seamlessly blending the comfort and practicality inherent in everyday objects with the rejuvenating allure of contemporary design.
The chair, along with its accompanying high and low stools, constitutes the indispensable components necessary to fulfill the demands of a home, be it indoors or outdoors, while seamlessly adapting to the ambiance of a restaurant or café. Crafted from polypropylene and fiberglass, the Cadrea collection boasts a monoblock structure celebrated for its lightweight composition, resilience to light, and weatherproofing capabilities.
Its restrained palette, ranging from pristine white to subtle light brown, and from deep dark brown to classic black, is enriched by the inclusion of a remarkably refined dark green. In addition, the indoor iteration of Cadrea offers an extra layer of luxury with lightweight eco-leather seat paddings available in matching or contrasting hues, including black, coffee, and cognac.
In essence, the Cadrea collection effortlessly marries functionality with aesthetics, offering a versatile and sophisticated ensemble suitable for a myriad of settings.
Seat Pad: 0.7 yards for fabric and vinyl // 6.3 sq. feet for leather
