Alma Swivel Chair and Pouf by Bernhardt&Vella for Calligaris


Alma Swivel Chair and Pouf by Bernhardt&Vella for Calligaris


Donated by Calligaris

Alma is an armchair with soft and welcoming shapes and a swivel metal base. Designed by Milanese studio Bernhardt&Vella, it was developed by joining up straight and curved lines where the back and arms converge in a single structure. Alma features decorative stitching along the profile of the rear part of the back and the sides to accent the armrests. The soft pouf is an inseparable companion to the armchair.

Designer: Bernhardt&Vella
Manufacturer: Calligaris
