Inspired by spring days and designed by Matteo Modica, aprile is a simple suspended chair that oozes elegance—a floating seat, shaped after spring petals, swinging gently. Designed and handcrafted in Italy with artisanal love, the chair is produced in two different finishing options: white matte lacquered high density wood or solid canaletto walnut. aprile’s hardware parts are made of stainless steel of AISI 316 grade, resistant to harsh conditions.
A limited-edition of just 60 (30 of each finish), aprile is secured to the ceiling with four 3mm stainless steel rods. The length of rods can be adjusted on demand. Each rod can sustain a load of up to 370kg, for a total maximum load of 1,480kg (3,263lb). The ring clips perfectly and seamlessly onto the seat.
I designed aprile to bring some lightness into everyday life, to give everyone a chance to take flight, even when sitting down.
