Milan 2014: Almora by Doshi Levien for BBItalia
British/Indian design duo Doshi Levien has designed the chair Almora for Italian furniture brand BBItalia.
Almora is the name of a town in the Himalayas wherefrom the concept for the chair was created.
“The idea of the chair really comes from this memory of seeing the snow-capped Himalayan peaks wrapped in a soft, warm blanket,” explains Jonathan Levien.
The chair consists of a two-part conical plastic frame that forms the seat and back with a curved oak head rest balanced on top of the frame.
The seat is upholstered in leather and the headrest is finished in shearling. The chair is mounted on a five-spoke aluminium swivel base and the accompanying ottoman has a round steel base and a curved wooden seat upholstered in leather.
