Milan 2023: Matteo Thun and Christophe Pillet at Ethimo

Pour la Milan Design Week, Ethimo dévoile le fauteuil dining Allaperto Bistrò et le fauteuil Grand Life, deux nouveautés qui viennent agrandir respectivement les collections Allaperto et Grand Life.

Pour cette nouvelle édition de la Milan Design Week, la marque italienne Ethimo propose de découvrir en exclusivité deux nouvelles assises. D’une part, le fauteuil Allaperto Bistrò, qui vient compléter la collection lounge emblématique Allaperto, imaginée par Matteo Thun et Antonio Rodriguez ainsi que le fauteuil Grand Life, imaginé par Christophe Pillet.

Allaperto Bistrò, Parisian inspired armchair


Inspired by the warm atmosphere of French cafes, Allaperto Bistrò is a small dining chair, reinterpreted by Ethimo, Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez. It is characterized by the ergonomic comfort of its seat, but also by its singular look, preserving the timeless charm of the weaving.

A model with a strong Parisian inspiration, combined with a simple and functional design, which perfectly reflects the dynamic spirit of the entire Allaperto collection. Practical, functional and easily stackable, the Allaperto Bistro chair can be combined with any type of table, regardless of its shape, use or material.

Grand Life, generosity and elegance


The Grand Life collection, designed by Christophe Pillet, tells the story through lounge furniture with welcoming ergonomics, synonymous with relaxed outdoor living and refined daily life. It is completed with a new table chair inspired by the emblematic shepherdess. An armchair with generous proportions, which reveals an elegance and a high fashion spirit, in perfect coherence with the whole range.

The Grand Life has the same formal and material composition as the shepherdess: its structure is made of natural teak, while its backrest takes shape in the intertwining of an acrylic rope, which evokes the handicraft work of the ancient Vienna straw. Its seat and back cushions are fully removable and are specially designed for outdoor use.
