Narì springs from a new collaboration with the designer Andrea Pedrali, who wished to pay tribute to his grandfather Mario Pedrali, founder of the company which celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2023.
The result is a seat that echoes some of the elements of the first forged iron garden chairs from Pedrali’s 1960s collection, in a contemporary key by using traditional techniques and know-how combined with new industrial technologies.
The distinctive feature of the legs of the Serenella chair of those years, obtained from a double rod forged by hand and bent, is evoked using a double steel tube that features a simpler, more linear shape.
This woven element, created in Italy by expert craftsmen, tightens towards the lower part of the seat and widens towards the top, calling to mind the fan-shaped geometry inspired by the backrest of the Serenella armchair.
Narì is an outdoor armchair with a strong steel structure and a weather-resistant woven in extruded PVC with a nylon core wrapped around the armrests and backrest.
The seat and backrest accommodate a comfortable polyurethane foam cushion covered with removable outdoor fabric.
Consisting of two sections joined by a zip, it rests on a seat with steel slats. The choice of the name stems from a popular local tradition and refers to the nickname by which Mario Pedrali’s family used to be identified.
