"Wir haben ein großes Bedürfnis zu experimentieren", so Yael Mer. Sie und Shay Alkalay gründeten 2007 das Studio Raw Edges und überraschen seitdem mit ungewöhnlichen Ansätzen im Design.
The new chair and lounge chair OMBRA is poetic in its essentiality, and represents Lema’s quintessential discretion and the rigorous style of Piero Lissoni, the brand’s art director since 1994.
Method and form are at the base of this refined industrial project where the innate lightness reveals a strong personality. OMBRA is characterised by the rarefied finely drawn architecture: the lines that form the structure in black lacquered steel, which appears light yet it is strong in its function and sustains the shell that harbours the seating and back. Formed by a printed sheet of rigid polypropylene, with a minimal depth, the shell is proposed in two versions: with a coating in black leather or entirely dressed in leather with a light padding. At the base of OMBRA, the profound research of forms and materials which is typical of Lema’s industrial approach and which has allowed the development of a chair which is able to join stylistic refinement with a balanced value for money.
