Nardi presents Folio, a sheet of resin for the new outdoor armchair

 

Folio is the name of the new embracing armchair designed by Raffaello Galiotto and Nardi for relaxing outdoors; it is made of fiberglass resin and it comes with a fixed base or in a romantic rocking version.

With its enveloping back seamlessly connected to the generously lowered seat, Folio is like a single, refined structural embrace and it can recline into two relaxing positions; in addition, harmonious and ergonomic Folio’s large structure is made of a sheet (“foglio” in Italian, from which it gets its name) in perforated resin with a square pattern and it has a skilfully curved design to perfectly balance the rigidity and elasticity of the seat and back.

The mobility of Folio has been designed without any interruption in shape, avoiding the use of connecting or rotating elements while maintaining the most clear-cut lines; with a simple and user-friendly mechanism, the back can be reclined extremely easily and gently without any forced or jerky movements.

In fact, cutting-edge technical solutions have been designed for hollow armrests that conceal a patented mini manual under-arm mechanism, which activates the sliding of tie rods to allow two-position adjustment.

Moreover, the soft internal cushion embraces the entire structure, perfectly adhering to it thanks to double fastening with wide and practical straps: Folio’s customisable cushions in removable fabric are available in four fabrics, with charming nuances, dedicated to outdoor spaces.

The Folio collection also includes a relaxing Poggio footrest/stool, also made of matt fiberglass resin, which has the same perforated square pattern as the armchair and optional soft, closefitting padding.

Finally, Folio is exceptionally easy to sanitize, weatherproof, stackable and entirely recyclable.
