The Ribbon stool is composed of continuously flowing ribbons of laser-cut metal, eliciting a perpetual effervescence. Designed by Nendo, the team of designers headed by architect Oki Sato, the Ribbon stool is cut out of a single sheet of metal and folded to give the impression that it is twisting and folding.
The Ribbon Stool range includes high and low versions, available in matt lacquered finish in white, red, black, and mud. For added comfort, the seat can also be equipped with a magnetic cushion, padded with polyurethane foam, and covered in a selection of leathers and fabrics from the collection.
The SOFT SIDE of Cappellini
