The external and internal upholstery in textiles or leather can be combined at will. The central metal base features 4 spokes designed to support the slightly sloping frame for greater comfort. The outer shell, made of moulded structural polyurethane foam entirely upholstered also in leather is matched by an inner foamed frame.
The whole thing rests on an elegant base made of solid ash lacquered open-pore Moka and refined little Pewter-colured pressure die-cast aluminium feet.
Two versions, tall and low, and a practical footrest complete the collection. The Kensington armchair offers a high degree of personalisation, given that the leather- clad outer shell can be combined with the inner frame, also clad in leather, for a refined mono material effect.
Alternatively, a pleasing contrast can be obtained by matching the leather-clad shell with an inner frame covered in one of the fabrics from the exclusive Molteni&C collection. With their refined elegance, these elements help to create intimate conversation areas both in the home and in hospitality spaces such as lounges, waiting rooms and executive offices.
Rodolfo Dordoni, architect and designer, was born in Milan, where he graduated in Architecture. His collaboration with Molteni&C has gone beyond the production of individual products and has become the creation of a collection for the dining room and night systems. These projects feature hidden high-technology in the products.complete biography
