Frisée is a collection that combines the solidity of wood with an ironic and playful frivolity typical of the soft and playful styling of Cristina Celestino, who designed it for Billiani. The rounded line enhances the company’s skills in working wood: a feature stemming from its long experience with its roots going all the way back to 1911, the year when Billiani starting making wooden chairs a Manzano, in the heart of a production district that has built its fortune on chairs.
The line of the collection is defined by corners morphing into delicate curves with gracefully studied details, like the tapering legs that end by swelling into an onion shape. The graceful lines are then covered with pure colors that enhance the form, making it a sophisticated yet light presence, perfect for the home as well as the contract sector. The seat and back are made of solid beech or ash, as is the structure. The seat also comes in a padded version. The Frisée collection develops as a chair, stool and armchair.
