Compasso, the wooden chair by Quadrifoglio Group

Quadrifoglio Group’s Compasso is a chair characterized by a sinuous and innovative form, ideal for both living areas of private homes and public spaces of restaurants and hotels. The sections of its front legs are triangular at the base and square in the connection with the seat. The rear legs, with a triangular section as well, are made of a single piece of wood that changes along the height, creating a 25° angle that defines the outline of a geometric compass. Variation is also found in the backrest, where the curved panel has a differentiated thickness.

Compasso is made of ash in Oak, Walnut, Shadow Grey and White. Its seat can be made of wood as the base or be padded and covered with a wide selection of fabrics and leather.

Made in Italy quality always triumphs

The result of careful design and research, this prestigious award testifies internationally to the constant commitment of Quadrifoglio Group in proposing furnishing accessories capable of giving added value to the environments thanks to an innovative design completely Made in Italy.

From March 31st, the day of the official award ceremony, Compasso will be exhibited for one year in the permanent collection of The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design in Athens.
