Designed for the fine dining restaurant Copenhague at Maison du Danemark in Paris, the four-legged Masculo Dining in metal marry the idea of Danish elegance and simplicity with Italian refinement and playfulness. The backrest of Masculo is almost overly large and appears to float in the air which is challenging to the senses. This is supported by the slender metal legs that make the whole dining chair almost sculptural and exciting to the eye. The upholstered chair ensures a high level of comfort, while its clean metal legs and sophisticated form lend the chair a graceful presence. The metal base gives the Masculo Dining Chair a more domestic expression that is perfectly suited for hospitality projects as well as the private home.
