Mornico Al Serio (BG), Italy
German designer Sebastian Herkner’s Blume Chair for Pedrali is the result of a slender, wave-like extruded aluminum profile with a cross section reminiscent of a flower blossom with seven petals.
“Blume” in German means of “flower.”
“The profile as a decorative element lends the Blume collection a character of its very own,” comments Giuseppe Pedrali, CEO of Pedrali SpA.
“Moreover, with their rounded shapes and ultimate comfort the chairs are firmly geared to human wellbeing.”
The slender, decorative profile wraps round a geometrical upholstered seat made of polyurethane foam.
The seating’s structure is reinforced by a steel element below the seat that also keeps the legs in place.
Fine cushioning covers courtesy of Kvadrat and Sahco make for a luxurious feel, something of great importance to Herkner.
Indeed, the chair is a veritable magnet tempting you to touch it, to run your hand softly over the refined profiles and the high-grade textiles.
The spectrum ranges from linen in natural colors to an opulent velvet in lush colors – “Blume” can be as discrete as it can be extravagant in effect.
The aluminum frame comes with grey, black, brass, or bronze finishes, and Pedrali also lets you choose between a matt or a gloss coat.
The stackable chair and lounger are not the only gems in the new collection as the characteristic profile is also to be encountered in a selection of couch tables of different heights, all of them featuring marble tops, be it the bright, sand-colored marble Breccia Aurora or Rosso Levanto, Fior di Pesco which naturally oscillates between reddish and grey-green.
