Split Francesco Meda, 2016
SPLIT is an innovative chair in both its lines and manufacture: the shell and base are made from the same synthetic materials, but have a different composition. The shell is softer and more flexible, providing comfort when seated, while the base is more rigid to deliver greater strength. This means the amount of material used is minimized, for a light look that belies the seating's solidity....
With numerous different versions to choose from - some of which offer the option of customizing the shell and frame colour combination - SPLIT is an ideal chair for both public and private settings, such as in kitchens, living rooms and on decks.
Francesco Meda, born in Milan in 1984 and a graduate in Industrial Design from the IED in 2006, began his career in London, working at the studios of Sebastian Bergne and Ross Lovegrove.
