Snap is a project consisting of a combination of polypropylene and steel pipes that create a seat, with and without armrests, and a stool that together represent the essence of sitting in its exemplary simplicity and functionality.
The seat has an atypical shell, made up of a plastic seat and back rest joined together by two ogival section arms, to allow movement making the seat structurally and aesthetically flexible and light.
The seat can be customized in a wide range of strong and contemporary colours, perfect for refined and dynamic interior and exterior projects and for large contract environments, such as meeting rooms, cafés and corporate catering venues.
“Designing for Et al. allowed me to create a flexible and light product. My intention was to create a collection trying to use the least amount of material possible without neglecting the ergonomic aspects and it happened through a deep study of the sections. Snap is "organic" and fluid as it occurs in nature, the meeting between the parts generates a unitary image typical of injection air molding technology. " Francesco Meda
