By the designers' own admissions, Cala was inspired by the outdoor wicker chair in ‘Emmanuelle’, the unforgettable French film from the 1970s. A piece in perfect balance between sensuality and tradition that also hints of a colonial style. The wide, welcoming backrest, supported by an aluminium structure, is covered, not by chance, in a rope weave that provide a sort of latticed window. A clue that leads us to the project's genesis: a challenge for visual privacy whilst maintaining a connection to the environment.
