Updated, simplified high back armchair.
Itís the non-traditional fabric that makes this updated armchair interesting. Designed by Alessandro Mendini, the Trevira fabric is a polyester. That, combined with the simplified structural design, makes this chair innovative Ė which was Mendiniís intent. Girotondo is a re-design of De Padovaís Tondo armchair.
