Rational and restful, the Lola armchair draws some of its elegance from the contrast the designer has managed to draw between its radical geometry and its slim profile, which organizes the space without invading it. Two slits in each arm facilitate movability and help enhance the impression of lightness.
“I wanted the arms to be generous, giving the wood a curve to provide a sense of firmness and comfort at the same time,” says Tresserra. “These first visual impressions have an immediate influence on the posture and mood of the person sitting in it.”
The “Lola” armchair, true to Tresserra’s style, combines walnut wood, vaquetilla leather and stainless steel, the specific and characteristic colours, materials and components of the Catalan designer’s collection.
“The proven quality of these materials in terms of durability and excellent aging provides an extra guarantee that protects them against the passing of time and places them on the plane of timelessness, far-removed from passing fads,” the designer says.
The Lola armchair debuted at Tresserra’s Paris showroom September 6, 2013. Lola incorporates light/dark walnut wood, vaquetilla leather upholstery in hazelnut/dark brown colour and stainless metal fittings. Its dimensions: 974 x 885 x 785mm.
