Flair O’ Chair

or Call to Order

Monica Armani’s Flair O’ is a small domes­tic throne, a chair that matches the glam­orous Allure O’ table perfectly. The two objects estab­lish a grace­ful dialogue start­ing from their bases. Both pieces sit atop a trun­cated pyramid with rounded edges to recon­cile the concepts of elegance and charm. The base widens gently on the back side as it nears the floor. It becomes almost unno­tice­able and provides great stabil­ity without inter­fer­ing with the harmony of the design. A padded seat provides neces­sary comfort. More­over, the accen­tu­ated tilt of the back­rest and its envelop­ing shape help people relax without compro­mis­ing the ideal posture to adopt when inter­act­ing with others elegantly around a dining table. The chair is equipped with a swivel mech­a­nism with an auto­matic return. The fabric cover embraces Flair O’ like a tailored suit, cover­ing it completely from the seat to the base.

Monica Armani

Italy (1964)

Architect and designer Monica Armani was born In Trento. She currently divides her time between Trento and Milan. She began her professional career working with her father, rationalist architect Marcello Armani, who passed on to her a passion for designing and planning, an attention to detail, and an enthusiasm for exploring new ideas. In 1996, together with Luca Dallabetta, she began to create a very successful line of products: Progetto 1, which was characterized by simple and innovative design and which established Monica Armani as a trademark in the world of contemporary design. In her projects, formal aesthetics, innovation and engineering give life to a unique and recognizable style, characterized by a continuous connection between industrial design, architecture and interior decoration: a combination that produces an unexpected use of space, with innovative and specific technical solutions from the Lights to the façade, from internal divisions to plant-design solutions. The rigor of geometry always inspires my projects, together with the need to free space from the burden of symbols. “Less Is more”, one of Mies van der Rohe’s maxims, is how I identify myself. I believe that the work of cleaning a project, the “matching of details,” or the search for a balance of all its aspects, is an essential step for creating “spaces” that are contemporary and at the same time timeless.
