Libera chair by Stua
In April at the International Salone del Mobile in Milan, Jesús Gasca, the founder of STUA, and his son Jon Gasca, launched the Libera armchair.
The visual character comes from its wooden frame, where the legs are seamlessly connected with the arms. Contemporary technology was used to form the organic shaped armrest, creating a tactile and pleasant feel. Libera also has great comfort achieved by the use of new elastic material cross woven within a rigid metal sub-frame. These details have produced an exceptionally elegant chair with a lovely silhouette and great ergonomics.
Ideal for both the home and contract use.
Another new classic in the STUA collection.
