Last year I showed you Éléonore Nalet‘s Serpentine chair as part of the IMM young designers exhibition.

This year Ligne Roset took the Serpentine in production and showed it at its IMM Cologne booth.

I show the visitor in the second photo to give you an idea of the chair’s size, as it is not so big.

Éléonore Nalet‘s serpentine chair was featured at 2011 IMM Cologne.

Serpentine is an armchair designed for sitting outside all year long. The delicate metallic structure reminds one of winter vegetation. When Summer comes back, Serpentine is dressed with long colored cushions that entwine the backrest and armrests supports. You can still glimpse the underlying metal frame, but your body will never feel its touch. The weaving creates a comfortable and welcoming irregular upholstery.
