Armadillo

Gianni Pareschi, 1969
Armadillo
busnelli-poltrona-armadillo-hero-1
The Armadillo armchair, originally designed in 1969 by Gianni Pareschi and one of the most iconic pieces in the Busnelli portfolio, gets a new look.

The heart of this icon is the curved tubular metal frame covered by plush, handcrafted cushions, which outline the profile of the seat.

The nuances created by the folds in the fabric evoke the natural characteristics of the armadillo, from which it takes its name. The workmanship of Armadillo is also visible in the cross-stitching with tone-on-tone or contrasting threads, creating an exquisite geometric pattern.

It is available in one unique colour with stitching to match the Touch and Feel leathers and Velvet in all their colour variants. In the case of the two-tone, the support fabric is made of Velvet 300 or leather Touch 2374 or leather Feel 7209 with contrast stitching that will follow the finish of the cushions. The remaining seat upholstery must be completed with the same type of fabric/leather. The Caleidoscopio version is made with Velvet 135 support fabric and cushions in 30 different colours of the same fabric.

Easy and functional 100% polyester velvet with excellent toughness and resilience, high resistance to abrasion, creasing and heat, and high dimensional stability, as well as good resistance to chemical and physical agents. Due to its low liquid absorption coefficient, it does not absorb moisture, making it waterproof and dirt-resistant.
