Presented at Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Milan 2012, by Frag s.r.l. the Button chair reinterprets the past in a harmonious blend of different compositional elements. The slightly curved seat and back have sinuous, rounded forms emphasised by padding that accentuates the thickness. “Pleating” enhances the chair’s generous shape and contour and lends a sense of three-dimensionality to the side panels by creating a delicate play of light and shadow. In contrast, the natural-wood structure is austere and linear, serving both to support and connect the chair’s main elements.
