The story of Nena is that of a dynamic iconic armchair, recognisable by the contrast between the minimal structure and the comfortable and generous seat size. An object born from an investigation into comfort, which reinterprets the typical female characteristics of balance, softness and dynamism.
Nena relays the comfort of an armchair into a small table armchair, ideal for the home and relaxation, but also for a work environment or restaurant, continually creating new narratives
Lanzavecchia + Wai is a creative collaboration between Francesca Lanzavecchia and Hunn Wai. To them, being designers means being researchers, engineers, craftsmen and story-tellers all at the same time. They began their cooperation at the Design Academy in Eindhoven, Holland, under the supervision of Gijs Bakker, co-founder of Droog Design. Lanzavecchia is focused on the relationships objects have and can have with the human body and soul as well as having a fervent eye for future trends. Wai is fascinated by the collisions and fusions of materials, meanings and forms. The design studio based both in Italy and Singapore was officially established in 2009 and their work spans from limited editions for galleries and museums, to mass products for major companies, to special commissions for brands like Alcantara, Samsonite, Mercedes Benz, AgustaWestland. Their recent accomplishments include being awarded with the “Young Design Talent of the Year” by Elle Décor International Design Awards 2014.
