Polar Perch

The Polar project began in 2006 with the creation of a multifunctional piece that could be used as a seat and an occasional table. Since then it has evolved into a complete furniture collection that draws its inspiration from nature and from the study of contemporary spaces. In the context of this “work in progress”, Polar Perch introduces an original pair of curved elements of different heights and complementary shapes. The lower element can be used as a sofa, while the higher one offers seating support. An innovative furnishing concept with scope to create innumerable solutions for the widest range of communal areas.
