Pour Casamania, Luca Nichetto a dessiné la chaise "Lepel". Conçue pour être stockée et transportée en éléments séparés, elle est constituée d'une structure métallique gainée de mousse de polyuréthane et revêtue de tissu.
Sur ce projet, l'agence de Luca Nichetto précise:
"The project stems from the desire to collaborate with Casamania to create an effective product from different points of view. Notoriously a chair, when packed, takes up much more space than its actual volume. You pack a seat, a backrest, the feet and sometimes the armrests. And lots of air, too.
This means oversized storage spaces and uncomfortable shipments, not respectful of nature.
Lepel starts from these considerations and develops the idea of having the ability to store and ship a chair into separate and stackable parts.
Two different backrests for a single chair. Each backrest is stackable with others, the same goes for the seat.
Chair and armchair, both upholstered and covered with fabric, have the same aesthetic philosophy, optimizing the production of molds.
“Lepel” means “spoon”in Afrikaans: this is the function of the two backrests, to contain and to support the seat like a spoon."
