Archibald King Armchair
Wallpaper* Award for the 2009 “Best Domestic Design” section, Archibald, is an invitation to meditation and relaxation. A contemporary armchair with a sartorial mood, created by a careful fine-tuning of forms, weights, and volumes. Its formal strength is the procession of pleats along the inner part of the leather upholstered back. The unexpected detail is the ear on the armrest, initially envisioned like the yoke of a shirt, then as a button, and eventually left the way it is—somewhat open, like the dog-eared page corners of an old school notebook.

The contrasting top stitching along the edges and outer surface of the upholstery give character to the chair’s back and various profiles. Its instinctive elegance places the emphasis on a design philosophy that makes even the most classic chair contemporary. This relatively young model has a name that rolls off the tongue, and has already become an icon. The frame of the backrest and seat is in steel with moulded polyurethane foam padding, and shaped foam with polyester wadding in the areas where more comfort is needed. Springing is obtained from elastic belts and the base is made up of four cast aluminium feet connected to a tubular steel frame with a gunmetal grey finish. The upholstery is in Pelle Frau® leather.
