The perfectly balanced volume of the Balù’s body matches impeccably with the characteristic support frame, redefining the form of a more typical tub style chair. The body of the chair is made of a mix of plywood and polyurethane, and when matched with the upholstery, offers excellent comfort as well as unobtrusive, relaxed design. Balù comes in many colour variations and neutral or tone-on-tone shades, in line with the collection colours.
The presence of the Balù chair is a reassuring one, and a perfect addition to a contemporary dining area, likewise any meeting rooms, small conference room, or reading nook. Equally suited to office and home – the Balù can be the final piece that completes the look a designer living room, study area or bedroom.
Available in a variety of finishes and upholsteries, Balù chairs work alone or combined together, both at home and in public areas.
