Combo e Stack

Combo and Stack are the new Nardi products in recycled and recyclable plastic from the Regeneration industrial programme for the production of recycled plastic furniture. Two elementary, simple objects that speak to the brand's green philosophy. Changing the way we produce, and doing so in favour of safeguarding resources, means going in search of new aesthetics and different solutions. Experimenting with the rigour of a monochromatic choice, that of the colour Earth, which truly allows post-consumer reuse of materials. Raffaello Galiotto is the designer working alongside Nardi for Combo and Stack. The formal choice tends towards the simplicity and rigour of the lines and the practicality of the joints. But there are also more 'gentle' parts, expressing the desire to do things correctly, but also pleasing and new from a typological point of view. Details such as the spiral design of Stack, which fulfils the function of stackability and at the same time breaks out of the classic external strip pattern. Or the central hole in the seat that serves to drain water in the event of rain, but also to be able to move the seat easily. Two different sizes of Stack, mini and maxi, give completeness to the range. Nardi also thinks about aesthetics and finds a way to recycled and recyclable plastic using codes similar to those of wood. The materiality, the irregular pattern, the matt and rough surface. Everything is reminiscent of wooden bundles. But the great thing about plastic, when used in large thicknesses and if it comes from reliable recycling programmes, is the possibility of putting existing materials back into circulation. In addition, Stack and Combo are made from a recycled plastic with high thicknesses, which is durable and maintenance-free.
