In Pil, softness is evident even before you seat on it. Pil draws its inspiration from the object that symbolises softness, namely the cushion: usually interpreted as an accessory, here the cushion plays the starring role, shaped and adapted to create a chair that conveys comfort and relaxation.
The main components of Pil are the backrest cushion and the seat cushion. The latter features a fold in the middle, created to generate an enveloping effect that physically and visually emphasises the feeling of softness. The base consists of metal legs, with the crossbars set at a special angle, to create an original graphic interweaving effect.
