Samurai Collection: Rossin’s Samurai collection was designed by Archirivolto Design. The seating series is characterised by a tubular steel structure that seems to embrace the backrest. The light, industrial character of this structure is contrasted by the voluminous, soft upholstery of the curved seat and backrest. Samurai comprises a stackable chair, an armchair, a 2-seater sofa, dining chairs of various shapes, a stool and a coffee table, all with the characteristic shape described above. All elements can be supplied with a smooth upholstery or with an eﬀect fold.
Archirivolto Design was founded in 1983 in Colle di Val d’Elsa, in the province of Siena, thanks to the collaboration between Marco Pocci and Claudio Dondoli. Specialising in seating design for more than 30 years, the design studio has a desire to make beauty accessible. Archirivolto Design chooses to follow the entire product development process, accompanying and supporting the customer step by step; starting from market research to the elaboration of creative ideas, to the realisation of prototypes made ad hoc by an in-house modeller, ﬁnally to the technical support to the company for the industrialisation of the object. Archirivolto Design’s mission ? To give light to projects in which creativity always pays attention to the saleability and large-scale marketability of the product itself.
