Winter days, stretched out on seating created by Pedrali, are not just about absolute comfort. Their abundant design goes further, soothing the body (and the mind) in an ergonomic embrace of forms, soft padding, intense color combinations, and warm fabrics. All shaped to respond to personal needs, offering relaxed living in every moment, during every activity, from work to leisure.
The Ila armchair, for example, has been created by Patrick Jouin with the aim of providing a refuge, a private niche. The curved lines of the outer shell in rigid polyurethane, with the inner part in soft, flexible polyurethane foam, create a sense of protection for those who want to grab moments of relaxation and escape. A flight from reality accentuated in the headrest version, for a pleasantly secluded effect. The seat can be combined with a central swivel base shaped like a truncated cone, or with a structure of four legs in steel tubing. Above all, it is composed of three parts that permit updating of the cover, while all the components can be easily separated for correct recycling at the end of the product’s life.
Comfortable and rounded, the chair created in a recent collaboration with Sebastian Herkner reminds us of a flower in its shape and its name, Blume, where personal wellness is the central focus. The structure in extruded aluminium supports a seat padded in polyurethane foam and visibly ‘rounded’ for a sensation of relaxation or convivial pleasure. Again in this case, the parts can be separated for correct disposal.

Babila XL – the size indication speaks worlds about its wearability – is comfortable like a tailored garment. The chair designed by Odo Fioravanti has a shell (and armrests) molded in polypropylene laden with fiber glass, with a completely removable cover. A version made completely with recycled material has just been released, composed 50% of post-consumer plastic waste and 50% of industrial plastic scrap. These are some of the first items in the ‘recycled grey’ series, the latest ecological initiative by Pedrali.
