Sometimes all it takes to do good design is to think about the use of already familiar materials and how to interpret them in the most rational way. Just as LucidiPevere have done, designing the Poncho armchair for Living Divani. A frame made of galvanized or painted tubular metal is upholstered in self-supporting PVC fabric, kept under tension by Kevlar ties that bind it to the structure. The armchair is light and comfortable, with an extra level of comfort provided by the addition of cushions. Poncho has been created for outdoor use and to resist exposure to the elements, but its fine contemporary design makes it a perfect piece of furniture for inside the house as well.
