Pepe – pepper in Italian – is the iconic seating element designed by Raffaella Mangiarotti for Opinion Ciatti. Like the spice it is named after enhances flavours leaving lasting impressions, so Pepe immediately catches the attention in the middle of a room or next to a desk.
Pepe is as pragmatic and simple as a pouf, but with a special ergonomic design that guarantees maximum comfort. Thanks to the careful research on shape carried out by the designer, Pepe's elegant and highly iconic lines are combined with precise features that ensure correct posture. It has the perfect height to make working at the desk comfortable and a curved sled base that allows to shift the weight forward, thus counteracting the tendency to sag while sitting.
Its saddle-shaped design and the hand-stitched black or natural leather that covers the steel structure evoke the world of horse riding, recalling images of boundless prairies and distant lands.
Pepe by Opinion Ciatti was awarded the Archiproducts Design Awards 2021 in the “Furniture” category: the jury chose Pepe for its evocative design as well as for the attention to comfort and ergonomics that characterise this piece.
