This dining chair is another simply appealing product from Tomoko Azumi
December 1st, 2012
For more than 60 years Zilio A & C of Italy have been producing exceptional timber furniture, Nico is no exception.
This collaboration with London-based designer Tomoko Azumi, is a meeting of traditional European manufacturing techniques and the minimalism of a Japanese aesthetic.
A frame of solid ash defines the Nico’s pared-back appeal. Specify with an upholstered seat pad: complementing or contrasting the hues in response to your requirements, or leave the timber seat bare, celebrating the warmth of the material and its grain, finished to match your frame.
Designed for use in contract and residential applications, the Nico collection stacks as well as employing environmentally sustainable timber plantations.
The choice here is as simple as the pleasant, unfussiness of the design.
