Experts amongst themselves

Paolo Lucidi and Luca Pevere love marriages of materials and enjoy playing with contrasts. Thus, they designed the Yak settee for De Padova in 2015, which associates a solid wooden structure with a rustic Nordic air with sumptuous goose feather-filled leather cushions.
As for the Backpack armchair, its distinctive
personality is derived from the slim, elegant
structure/base which is the perfect foil for the
perfectly-designed silhouette of its welcomingly
thick and ergonomically-curved seat/back
cushion. At the top of the back, the cushion rolls
over on itself and is held in place by a strap on
its back which is evocative of the kind of backpack
used by the explorers of yesteryear.
The airy base in brown or white lacquered
aluminium – a material routinely used for the
frames of large travellers’ backpacks – is a
well-considered interplay of sloping lines which
confers on the piece, in astonishing style, an air
of restless dynamism whilst oering an impression
of reassuring stability.
Moving the Backpack seating really is child’s
play: one is surprised by their lightness, which is
not only visual but also real.
