for B&B Italia
The Doyl chair is a simple, comfortable chair with refined details created in just one material. The Doyl chair introduces a typology of an upholstered thick leather chair where the classic proportions are inverted, transforming lines that are normally concave into convex sections, and thus enhancing the perception of softness. The designers placed great importance on graphic markings, created through continuous stitching on both the fronts and backs of the chair which correspond to the cutting lines and junctions of the thick leather. The thick leather is folded, curved and turned inside out, but never cut. The upholstery adds surprising comfort for a thick leather chair, while alternative technical materials offer brightly colored variations.
