Airy, with constructive details linked to Japanese tradition, the Torii modular seats play with round edged volumes, thin profiles and the apparent formal simplicity of an extremely detailed design.
The metal structure of the legs of the seats and tables is Nendo’s nod to the image of the “torii”, the entrance gate to Shinto shrines in Japan.
With an interlocking game, the horizontal elements are laid on the vertical supports, ensuring a sophisticated visual lightness that accommodates the padded volume, characterised by couture craftsmanship.
The Torii family includes sofas - with high or low backrest and a linear shape, rounded at the arms - inclined sofas with a combination of two different depths, armchairs and lounge and dining little armchairs, ottomans, coffee tables, and a slender, oval-shaped console table, ideal for placing anywhere in the living area.
The varied range of products makes it possible to design a flexible layout, in which the individual elements can also be combined to create a strong visual unity. The metal frame found in the components of the Torii family evokes the image of the “Senbon Torii, the wooden colonnade that forms a gallery made up of 1,000 vermilion torii gates”, as Nendo reminds us.
The Torii coffee tables also feature the same structural style details as the seats, reflected in the metal frame with Bronze colour varnished finish and details in Black-Nickel metal.
Available in different sizes, ranging up to an impressive diameter of 120 cm, and different heights, they feature a top in Calacatta or Stone Grey marble with matte polyester finish, in black pâte de verre or in Liquorice colour brushed ash wood, enclosed by a Liquorice colour matt lacquered frame.
