The Luigina collection of sedie (chairs, in Italian) is timeless in its design and breathtaking in its delicate architecture. I have always loved chairs that incorporate a circular design, especially ones as graceful as Luigina. They work well for kitchen and dining room chairs, and larger-scale versions make wonderful accent chairs, too. If you are a fan of handmade Italian furniture, then you are in for a treat with the Luigina collection from Italian company Sotow.
Sotow considers itself an artisan workshop that creates elegant and distinctive furniture. The company was founded by Milanese designer Paolo Calcagni. Calcagni aims to combine innovative technologies with traditional artisan methods to create simple furniture that belies its sophisticated construction. He says that his furniture may be simple, but it is made “like tailored clothes: customized to our clients’ taste and needs.”
Before Sotow, Paolo Calcagni worked in advertising for global brands including Swatch, Vodafone, and L’Oréal. He discovered his love for furniture design while editing the “The Official Point of View” for the Milan Furniture Fair. After exhibiting ten successful chair prototypes, he was hooked on furniture design.
About Sotow’s Luigina Collection
The Luigina collection of chairs are framed in enameled iron. This makes them ideal for indoor and outdoor use. With over 200 colors and patterns to choose from, you can customize the cushions to fit any style you desire. The elegant ironwork of Sotow’s Luigina chairs make the chairs perfect for a garden table or an Italian terrace on the Amalfi coast.
Luigina Pink Queen
The Pink Queen style of Sotow’s Luigina chair features 24-karat gold flash plating and brass feet. The back cushion swivels for ergonomic adjustment and, along with the seat cushion, is covered in cotton velvet. Light blue piping adds a bit of character to the otherwise classic chair.
Luigina Exotic Evasion
The Exotic Evasion style of Sotow’s Luigina chair is absolutely striking. This is one chair that is sure to wow your guests. The fabric of the cushions is printed in HD with an image that is reminiscent of 19th-century panoramic paintings. Yellow piping complements the exquisite details of the printed fabric.
Luigina Legs Fly
The Legs Fly version of the Sotow Luigina chair is the perfect bar seating that sacrifices neither grace nor luxury. The same finely detailed print from Exotic Evasion appears on Legs Fly. Isn’t it just stunning?
