ANTEPRIMA SALONE 2016: Ethimo & Patrick Norguet

Nicolette grew from the idea of creating an aluminium chair with light and delicate lines yet robust enough for everyday use; a chair capable of withstanding the effects of time, designed for outdoors but suitable for a variety of uses; an original, well-made chair. Nicolette shows a certain sophistication, maintaining a simple character which imparts elegance.

Ethimo and Patrick Norguet have created – for this year Salone del Mobile – a chair that combines a variety of ma- terials along with different techniques for working the aluminium: the structural parts in aluminium are injection-moulded, then assembled using components in extruded aluminium.

This characteristic of elegant simplicity, combining lightness and practicality with attention to detail and carefully sourced materials, makes the chair ideal for furnishing outdoor spaces as well as for enhancing the living area. Nicolette is a contemporary take on an unconventional elegance.
