RONDINE LOUNGE CHAIR, 2017. PHOTOS BY MARIO CIAMPI & DRAW
While at first glance Rondine might tribute to classic Scandinavian design, in fact the construction and the framework are completely different. They embody and enhance the ability and quality of Ceccotti’s solid woodworking. Like the tail of a swallow (‘Rondine’ in Italian), the rear structure of the backrest opens gently in two legs, giving stability and at the same time creating a unique and iconic shape.
In the collection traces of a genuine passion for the archetypes of European design of the 50s and 60s are revealed by the generous curves of the seat and the backrest, while soft transitions along the wooden structure recall the gentle and organic language of Carlo Mollino. However, the general construction, proportions, technique and upholstered materials and high comfort make it a truly contemporary chair. Rondine family expanded in 2018 with the addition of the dining version.
