Nova 2seat 1

Nova two-seater

Nova is family of light-weight textile chairs and armchairs with a precious look and a fully removable fabric cover. A fully textile look combined with physical and visual lightness and the possibility to remove the cover – through four zippers located under the seat – are the characteristics of an absolutely unique and original product. The Nova sofa is a perfect two-seater for smaller spaces: when combined with the armchair and pouf of the same line it creates a full and yet contained living room set.

Metal tube structure, elastic support belts, internal cushions in polyurethane, dacron lining, fabric or leather cover.

Medven two-seater

gotham sofa 1

Gotham two-seater

The distinctive linear geometry and the visual lightness of the Gotham Two-seater come from its metal frame, a clean aerial structure that holds the seat and backrest cushions. These in contrast are generous and voluminous thus creating a visual juxtaposition between the supporting base and the upholstered elements, between structural need and seating comfort. The Gotham sofa is a perfect two-seater for smaller spaces. Combined with the armchair and pouf of the same line it creates a full and yet contained living room set.

Grey cadet painted structure, polyurethane cushions with fabric or leather covers. The steel structure can be painted in other colours upon request.

little big bubble 1

Little Big Bubble

A small armchair that integrates an excellent level of comfort and a clean look through the careful study of proportions, filling materials and surface treatment. It is a mint product that combines the flair of something lived-in with the appeal of modern performance. The soft surfaces and the extra flesh of an armchair that has lost its shameless turgidity are the sign of a lasting and mature elegance.

Solid poplar, poplar plywood and birch plywood internal frame. Elastic support straps, polyurethane core, dacron lining coupled with cover material, leather or fabric cover, down-filled seat cushion.

little sexy beast 1

Little Sexy Beast

It features the same plush, round volumes and luscious comfort of our Sexy Beast sofa and armchair but in a small, compact version developed for smaller spaces and for the contract market. The ends of the armrests and backrest are angled at 45 degrees to increase the perceived width of the elements and the perceived overall size of the armchair. We use an absolute minimum amount of polyurethane and only in very few critical points. The comfort of our Little Sexy Beast is obtained through elastic straps, dacron and natural down.

Poplar or pine solid and plywood internal frame. Elastic support straps, polyurethane core, dacron lining, leather or fabric cover, down-filled seat cushions.

New Outline 1

New Outline

New Outline was developed by maximizing the integration of form and function while using minimum material. The steel rod frames define a contour that is slender and light, becoming armrests and backrest as a simple and fluid line. The fully removable seat pan and backrest are made of rich cow-hide. Hidden elastic belts allow them to flex with the weight of the body without stretching thus preventing them from losing their shape and structural property. Familiarity and innovation avilable in 30 colours.

Cow hide seat and backrest, internal elastic straps, cadet gray painted steel structure. Other colours available upon request.

Aluchair 2

Aluchair

Aluchair features.the form of the archetypal chair but it is made of solid metal: the body is created by mechanically joining two cleverly folded sheets of alluminium. No welding is involved in the manufacturing process. We finish Aluchair with a shiny, polished, mirror-like surface or with an anodized paint. Four small alluminium cylinders complete the legs and house the rubber feet, making Alu extremely quiet despite its full alluminium body. Alu is simple and light and yet precious and comfortable.

Bent and polished alluminium sheet body, mirror polished or anodized, rubber feet.

Nua 1

Nua

Nua is extremely light, comfortable, visually striking and stackable. The metal structure was developed using the principle of the trestle where each welded steel-rod segment contributes to the overall rigidity and equilibrium of the assembly. Comfort is provided by two cushions held in place by the geometry of the structure without the need for any type of fastening element. Nua champions a philosophy of economy of material where the visual expression of a physical principle translates directly into the form of the final product.

Structure made of painted steel rod in black, red or white. Polyurethane-filled cushions with fabric or leather covers.

Bic 1

Bic

Bic chair is made by a single metal assembly that supports the upholstered seat and holds the legs and the backrest. The use of different materials in the parts of the chair allowes us to take full advantage of their structural properties and their surface qualities: the tactile richness of solid wood for the backrest, the softness of ecoleather and foam for the seat, the rigidity of metal in the supporting structure and the durability of the unpainted natural finish in the solid-wood legs.

Painted steel structure, solid wood legs and backrest, ecoleather upholstered seat with elastic support belts and polyurethane cushion. Available in black or white with legs in natural wood.

roll cover

Roll table

Roll is Epònimo’s central stem dining table. The base, carved from a single block of marble, is a geometric and yet organic sculpture that changes dramatically when viewed from different angles. Functionally it supports a thick but clear glass top which maintains a perfect visual balance with the marble volume below without hindering the view of it. With our standard glass top our Roll table seats 8 people.

New Saint Laurent marble and 15 mm extra-clear tempered glass. Other stones are available upon request.

Gotham MT 1

Gotham MT side table

The Gotham MT sidetable/nightstand is simple and rich at the same time. The base is made with a very thin squared metal tubing which results in physically and visually light and clean geometric structure. The circular top is thick solid marble made visually lighter by a bevelled edge. Available in 2 heights.

roll side table cover

roll side table

Our Roll side table is obtained from the “waste” material that is generated in the manufacturing process of our larger dining table: when we produce it we core out the base by extracting two identical cylinders: with these we produce as many Roll side tables. They are in fact identical scaled-down copies of the dining table but instead of supporting a glass-top they feature a carved lip on the top surface to safely prevent objects from falling or sliding off.

New Saint Laurent marble. Other stones are available upon request.

gotham wardrobe cover

gotham wardrobe

The Gotham wardrobe merges the functions of a coat hanger and those of a set of shelves. It can be used in the home or in a commercial space to display hanging as well as folded garments. The structure is physically and visually extremely light; it can be moved with no effort. The shelves are upholstered in velvet to create a luxurious surface that is pleasing to the touch and gentler toward fragile and delicate items.

Grey cadet painted steel structure with shelves upholstered in blue cotton velvet. Other fabrics and colours available. The steel structure can be painted in other colours upon request.
