Sign Filo - MDF
The new Sign Filo seat is a perfect combination of design and craftsmanship.
Its workmanship is built up like a refined jewel: the creative process of this chair reminds the ancient goldsmith’s technique of filigree.
“At one point I felt the need to make Sign lightweight thinking about the lesson of Italo Calvino on Lightness. I realized that we could keep Sign’s design by removing the surfaces and replacing them with metal wires. It was a leap from solid to ethereal.“
– Piergiorgio Cazzaniga.
