To celebrate the 40th anniversary of UAE National Day, (December 2) Autentico Living has partnered with Italian furniture upholsterer, Adrenalina, to create the Atina chair.
The limited edition piece will be hand made in Italy upholstered in synthetic glossy leather using colours from the UAE flag.
It can also be personalised with a customer’s logo, on request.
“The production of the chair is completely hand-made on Adrenalina’s premises in Northern Italy,” said Daniela Rossi, founder, Autentico Living in Dubai.
“The company has 40 years experience in the soft furniture field and Atina comprises a wooden frame, different densities of Italian polyurethane and chrome-plated metal legs.”
The chair is designed by Simone Micheli, a multi-award winning architect from Tuscany and founder of Simone Micheli Architectural Hero Design Company.
His unique projects are well known for its strong personality in addition to being sustainable and environmentally friendly.
Micheli’s design for Adrenalina gives shape to ironic, colourful and playful items featuring uncommon shapes always in respect to the comfortable and functional standards for chairs and sofas.
The Atina chair will be available in the UAE from September but, being a Limited Edition, customers are advised to secure their piece by ordering it online on www.autenticoliving.com by mid July.
