Wudi is a collection of armchairs, benches and side tables for lounge areas that combine tradition and modernity through the use of wood. The armchair is a timeless and comfortable design, characterized by its expressive armrests. A backrest supported by a fabric stretched like a sail contributes to the light and relaxed spirit of the piece. The rounded solid wood structure radiates warmth and softens its image, while the upholstery and high-quality details lend it great elegance. The collection is completed with original upholstered benches and side tables that can be easily integrated into multiple spaces.
