Tobia Scarpa, who has worked alone since the death of his wife in 2011, collaborated with Cassina to reimagine the Carlotta armchair in durable, weather-resistant materials.
The revamped design features a low-slung teak frame and cushions padded with recycled PET fibre.
“Carlotta has an informal, carefree soul with an ample and welcoming seat,” Cassina explained.
Woven cords are threaded into a linear pattern across the chair’s backrest, functioning as both support and subtle decoration.
Carlotta is available in a range of outdoor fabrics from Cassina’s collection, which are able to withstand a variety of weather conditions.
