The Newood Relax Light chair, by BrogliatoTraverso, is an elegant interpretation of the Newood chair, but this version is lighter due to the elimination of the eight rods that characterized the original backrest.
Made of solid ash wood, Newood Relax Light has a padded seat with a fixed cover in leather or fabric. The back rest, made of a single piece of steam-bent and moulded wood, has a distinctive open space and the ergonomic design ensures maximum comfort.
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.
