The world's best works, within art and design, are characterized by their aesthetic value, their functionality, and the efficiency of their composition. Hence, technique must be considered as an integral part of the process leading to the creation of a piece of design. Solfeggio, for musicians; the art of mixing colors, for painters; engineering and mechanics, for designers. Ricciolo is the best representation of said concept: its internal structure, its spine - invisible and silent - is what makes Ricciolo so flexuous and fascinating. It is composed by a pair of steel chains, framed onto a glossy chrome, swiveling base; this mechanism wraps and unwraps with basically no effort required, and thus allowing Ricciolo to almost be a living part of your room.

Still, the final result is yet to be earned: Ricciolo's skin, its looks, must be respectful of the dynamics of said movement, it must be soft in every possible position, once again providing a veil of comfort and gentleness to encase its mechanical soul. To achieve such a result, it was covered in a rubber padding (polyurethane foam), composed by several layers with a different density. This manufacture technique, in all its complexity, provides comfort in every position.

The result, the ending of a creative process that requires artisanal skills, technique, and a strong sense of aesthetics, is a seat that serves two functions, two looks, two souls: an armchair and a chaise-longue, verticality and immediacy that can be converted into a flat position, into a comfort that gets rid of traditional shapes, and enters flexuous the world of design. A simplicity that comes from a complex universe, technicalities that become poetry, freedom and comfort made possible by an invisible process.
