Armchair

Our latest Project with the design Studio Nadadora has produced an easy chair that is perfect to sit back and halt time in its tracks.


During the last edition of IMM in Cologne, Sancal presented a couple of prototypes, but it will be in Milán when the entire family will be revealed together with other exciting new products.


The next collection comes from far away and has a certain mist of mystery around it. But, for now, we will turn our attention to the Tortuga.


We admire the slow, stately pace of a tortoise and envy its long life. That’s why, when design studio Nadadora took on the brief to come up with a timeless design, a chair that we dream of as we plod back home, inspiration from this unique animal reared its head.


The idea steams from a shell that we can withdraw into, immersing ourselves in a good novel or drifting off to sleep… Its formal simplicity is something of an expression of the studio’s calm personality, although the choice of textiles can add contrasting exuberance.


A tortoise carries its home with it, so our Tortuga, as the chair has been named in Spanish, is warm, cosy, soft and even rotates. A true slow-lounge-chair.


The collection is completed with a version without the headrest, as well as a pouf and a table.
