Yo – multipurpose chair

Yo is a collection of seats and stools designed for public, home and work environments.

Variety of materials, functional declination and wise use of colour are the characteristic features of a simple and elegant product, however fresh and eye-catching at the same time, suitable to meet the needs of an increasingly heterogeneous and changing market.

In this community-environment suitable chair, the structure, in its formal simplicity, represents the theme of the whole collection and, when combined with different bases, generates a multiform family, which makes versatility its distinctive feature.

The chromatic combinations of upholstery, wood and metal allow to animate the office environment, creating a welcoming and informal atmosphere, in which people feels at ease.

The modern and essential design and the wide range of finishes add a touch of liveliness to contract and home furnishing projects.

Depending on the structure’s material, the Yo collection is divided into: Yo Wood, with a beech plywood structure or a natural or bleached oak veneer one; Yo Fabric, with a lightly padded structure covered in fabric or imitation leather.

For the seat you can choose between a cantilever or 4-leg frame in chrome-plated or painted in seven different shades: white (RAL 9010), black (RAL 9005), yellow (RAL 1018), red/beige (RAL 3012), red (RAL 3020), grey/green (RAL 7009), pastel blue (RAL 5024).

The wide choice of finishes is also available for visible chrome-plated or metal painted armrests.

Stackability, attachability and availability of a removable writing tablet (provided only for the sled variant), allow Yo to fit into public spaces such as libraries, auditoriums and multipurpose rooms.

To complete the collection, the proposal of a stool in two different heights becomes the ideal solution for furnishing hybrid spaces, where the work environment mixes with relaxation areas and meeting and collaboration spaces.
