“We bring old projects back to life thanks to the experienced hands of Italian artisans!”

Tripolina Design brought the old tripolina chairs back to life creating design leather armchairs with a retro flavour, that are versatile and timeless home décor accessories. The old project was revised, the design was modified studying proportions and ergonomics with a CAD system. The whole hardware was redesigned and it’s made up of laser-cut, hand-brushed stainless steel. The wooden structure, the bolts, the leather and the carrying bag are meticulously designed, elaborated and forged by human hands.

Each imperfection shows the great quality, uniqueness and Italian artisanal care the chairs are made with, characteristics that are million miles away from the tawdry and industrial versions that can be found on the market.

CHARACTERISTICS

THE LEATHER

The full-grain leather comes entirely from slow certified vegetable tanning factories in Tuscany, in full respect of the environment. Tripolina Design armchairs have no patches or additions. All the leather is edged with a tape of the same material and trimmed with ancient tools made by hand by the craftsman.

THE STRUCTURE

For the folding structure we used the precious ash and chestnut oak. Each section of wood that makes up the skeleton is cut and finished by hand. All the hardware of Tripolina Design is made of three millimeter 316 stainless steel, laser cut and brushed by hand. Finally, the brackets were fastened with bolts. The latter are also made of stainless steel.

THE PACKAGING

The particular structure of the tripolina allows a simple and cumbersome closure. The structure and the leather are packaged in a special bag handmade by a seamstress and placed in the transport box. The case is made of a natural fabric.
