The new oversize armchair offering limitless comfort

 "I started to design this armchair for Bonaldo and, from the very first sketches, I realised that what was taking shape with my pen looked very much like a hummingbird. So I drew a flock and imagined myself flying away attached to their feathers. An idea of comfort without gravity".

The image described by Fabrice Berrux, who designed Colibrì, led to the new armchair by Bonaldo: a generous seat that comfortably welcomes its guests and envelops them with its large backrest. The oversize seat and backrest are supported by an apparently slender swivel base, creating an interesting game of balances: the Colibrì armchair looks like it is light-weight, yet at the same time it appears to have an imposing presence in the space.

The five-spoke swivel base lends the overall image lightness and motion, recalling that idea of "comfort without gravity" conceived by the designer. The special padding of the seat and the backrest emphasises the sense of softness and comfort already guaranteed by the laminated fabric upholstery that adds volume to the figure.

Colibrì perfectly fits into Bonaldo's collection: the impeccable design teamed with functional and formal research and the superior quality of Made in Italy excellence guaranteed by the brand have given rise to an unusual product that guarantees ultimate levels of comfort.
