contemporary stool / bamboo / polyurethane / contract
by Studio Nendo
"Either stool or table, outdoor or indoor: Sag represents a polyhedral and functional complement. Stool’s legs are usually designed with “column” elements. On the contrary, Sag has been designed as a whole piece folded on itself, as a fabric suspended in the air and melted in three directions into a single shape. Its concave arc structure, thus generated, gives Sag its special soft and elastic image, but also an incredible sturdiness, capable of distributing forces and absorb loads.
Frame in stiff polyurethane, obtained through moulding, available in goffered matt white and matt mud.
The polyurethane used, called TECH, is a structural and high-density material, which means it is highly shock-resistant, as well as scratch-resistant and resistant to ageing.
Available in polyurethane and bamboo.
The polyurethane version, in matt white or matt mud, is moulded in a soft integral polyurethane called Freeform (with plywood insert). Freeform polyurethane has a pleasant and soft touch with a good mechanical resistance.
The wood variant is composed of a bamboo veneered plywood panel, with narrow plank and evaporated finish.
Sag is not only a stool. Its packaging has been object of study in terms of usability, materials and innovation, too. Environmentally-friendly, with neither internal parts in plastic material nor chemical adhesives, but fully in cardboard; it is communicative and expressive, with dedicated graphics and special foldaway handle to be easily transported. Thus, packaging turns Sag into a different and fascinating gift idea.
Only the variant with frame and seat in polyurethane is recommended also for outdoor use."
