Acclaimed designer Naoto Fukasawa presents his latest exploration of shape and form with Tuscany, the chaise longue that marks an important contribution to the Molteni&C catalog, inspiring new ideas. In creating the design, Fukasawa interpreted the iconic vistas of the Italian landscape through the lens of his own aesthetic, merging stylistic cues in a way that captures the finest of both worlds – the Italian and the Japanese.

“The Chaise lounge, with its undulations reminiscent of the rolling hills of Tuscany, was designed so that you can lie on it and doze off while gazing at the hills in the distance. The soft and ergonomic cushions conform easily to the contours of your body.”

The Tuscany embodies the idea of comfort with a structure expertly molded to the contours of the body.

Its silhouette provides a sense of lightness and fluidity rooted in an innovative design that is both visually harmonious and deeply relaxing.

The form is the result of meticulous technical development by Molteni&C's R&D Department, which created, together with the designer, the ideal proportions for the chaise's unique shape. The smooth, rounded legs are made from solid wood and are connected by a satin brass H-frame, providing a sturdy and stylish base for the chaise longue.

Connected to one another by carefully hidden zippers, the cushions form an articulated whole that neatly hugs the structure. These are available in a variety of fabrics and leathers from Molteni&C’s textile collection to easily complement a range of interior concepts. The rounded headrest moves independently from the square cushions and is balanced by a metal dowel held by adjustable straps to hold it in place, allowing for customized comfort.

Tuscany is available in two versions. The first offers a eucalyptus finish with matte painted satin brass. The second is composed of natural Sunrise Oak, for a contemporary balance of bright wood and stainless steel.
Stunning and innovative, the Tuscany chaise longue seamlessly blends form and function, and is sure to become a timeless addition to any interior space.
