Folio, my special place
The soft and pleasant embrace of a very special armchair.
Folio is the stylish and embracing collection of armchairs and footrest by Nardi for relaxing outdoors made of fiberglass resin. The armchair comes with a fixed base (Folio) or in a romantic rocking version (Folio Rocking) where at the base, there are two polypropylene glides that can be attached to the seat, instead of feet, to obtain the gentle swinging movement of rocking chairs.
The rocking base kit is optional for the fixed base armchair and can be purchased separately.
The armchair, with its sumptuous and enveloping back seamlessly connected to the generously lowered seat, is like a single, refined structural embrace. It can recline into two relaxing positions. It’s large structure is made of a sheet (“foglio” in Italian, from which it gets its name) in perforated resin with a square pattern. It has a skilfully curved design to perfectly balance the rigidity and elasticity of the seat and back, while his mobility has been designed without any interruption in shape, avoiding the use of connecting or rotating elements while maintaining the most clear-cut lines. With a simple and user-friendly mechanism, the back can be reclined extremely easily and gently without any forced or jerky movements. Cutting-edge technical solutions have been designed for hollow armrests that conceal a patented mini manual under-arm mechanism, which activates the sliding of tie rods to allow two-position adjustment.
The soft internal cushion embraces the entire structure, perfectly adhering to it thanks to double fastening with wide and practical straps. Folio’s customisable and washable cushions are available in 4 fabrics, with charming nuances, dedicated to outdoor spaces.
The Folio collection also includes a relaxing Poggio footrest/stool, also made of matt fiberglass resin, which has the same perforated square pattern as the armchair
Designed by Raffaello Galiotto, Folio collection is the result of a long process of designing and testing. Only thanks to the company’s know-how, which successfully exploits the flexibility and elasticity of resin, was it possible to design an extremely innovative, high-performance and stylish chair.
The collection is exceptionally easy to sanitize, weatherproof, stackable and entirely recyclable.
