The basis of the Facett range is two settees and an armchair, complemented by two footrests (which can be used as extensions to the seating). The magic of Facett will touch all those who desire purity, without compromising on the perfection of the design. Compare for example the minimalist simplicity of its monolithic form with the ultra-sophisticated work involved in its realisation - in particular the stitching (toning or contrasting), the complexity of which recalls the cutting and shaping of a precious stone, or even the complex folds of origami.
CONSTRUCTION Three layers of criss-cross panels and thermoformed polystyrene, overlaid with polyether foam. Invisible feet in black polythene. Pivoting armchair: steel base Ø 45 cm thickness 8 mm, finished in Epoxy black lacquer.
COMFORT Suspension of seat via elastic webbing. Integral seat cushion in high resilience polyurethane Bultex foam (42kg/m3 - 4.8 kPa). Integral back cushion in Bultex foam (30kg/m3 - 1.8 kPa). Lumbar cushion in Bultex foam (26kg/m3 - 1.4 kPa) with removable cover (zipped on).
MAKING-UP Cover quilted with polyether foam (21kg/m3 - 3.1 kPa) in 5cm wide bands. Single stitching for quilting; highlighting in twin needle stitching. Covers are held on by zips and velcro, and are fully removable. Large settee has 210m of stitching, using 700m of thread (600m for the medium settee and 400m for the armchair).
FABRICS Stitching on the armchair, settees and footrests is either toning or contrasting (in which case choice of 5 colours: ecru, anthracite, grey, red or blue).
