Awarded the IF Design Award for 2017 the ‘Riverside’ is quite literally an Award winning chair. Designed by Mac Stopa for Tonon Italia this chair is carefully considered on many levels. The pleasant sensation of softness and comfort, is due to its unique undulating form and application of composite materials.
The body of the chair is made from a bi-component molded polyurethane material called ‘soft touch plus’ . This soft touch plus material combines a flexible polyurethane core and an external polyurethane skin, colored, compact and elastic. The material is extremely resistant and fire retardant, is non toxic and
100% hygienic. This beautiful material also means the chair can be used for outdoor as it is waterproof and stain resistant.
