Florence

Florence is a reintroduction of a timeless and elegant design icon.



BY jesse

March 22nd, 2011


Florence is manufactured the same way as Bentwood chairs were manufactured 150 years ago.

 

The process involves bending a piece of steamed solid wood at an angle of as many as 180° is a job that only human hands can manage.

 

Bentwood chairs are highly sought-after for architects, hotel administrators, restaurants, and cafés as they aptly represent old world style in today’s modern environments.
