Luca Scacchetti, 2011
The Silhouette seating collection designed by Luca Scacchetti is more than just a general shape. What remains in our minds is the profile of its form, with the combined shape and shadow creating the silhouette. The design remains outwardly anti-static, with an almost uncertain equilibrium due to the apparent lack of physical contact between the seating and back. This double silhouette is repeated between the outside frame in natural or lacquered wood, and the inside cushion covered in leather or fabric. This double repetition acts to underline, as if to rivet the image of the slim profile in our minds, where technologies and elegance meet to create a general lightness of the ensemble.
Winding lines, crossing between the shapes of a boomerang and the shapes of the wing of a bird, are brought back to paper in their essential geometry, with nearly Leonardesque traces.
High, medium or low elements on a sliding spoke, or tubular frame, or a single steel pole can be utilized to build a family of desks and conference tables of every shape and style. They can also be used in public places like bars, restaurants, lounges or hotels to propose solutions with great elegance for seating that appears almost flying or hanging.
The pictures are illustrative and there may be slight chromatic variations in the realization.
