The goal behind this limited edition piece is to change the general perception of a chair and its wooden material to reveal an expression that is fluid, dynamic and continuous. Belcanto represents the hidden ambition of a chair to become poetry for the eyes. Made from exotic Guayubira wood, indigenous to South America, the material is pushed to its limits to reflect the purity of form and the essence of function in a sinuous shape to reveal an unexpected profile that appears weightless.
