An elegant evolution of the Newood Chair, Newood Relax armchair, by studio BrogliatoTraverso, reflects the simple and refined nature of the original design – but now in a contemporary new interpretation of the classic Windsor chair.
Like the chair, the Newood Relax armchair has a solid ash base, proposed in the same selection of hues; whereas the padded seat is upholstered with a fixed cover in the fabrics and leathers from the collection.
Both hold a degree in architecture from the University of Venice, Alberto Brogliato and Federico Traverso founded the BrogliatoTraverso design studio after undertaking journeys and experiences that allowed them to enrich their personal and professional backgrounds, such as the exploration of the art of glassmaking in Murano and traditional ceramics in Japan.
The philosophy that defines the BrogliatoTraverso studio can be summarized by the claim: “NO TIME, NO SPACE”.This highly personal design method captures their desire to create objects that are atemporal and acontextual. The two professionals work through subtraction, creating works that are rich with details that are nearly imperceptible.
