Buddy collection has been enriched with new elements that enhance its versatile, functional nature, featured by a contrast between the bold volumes of the seat and a slender, lightweight frame. The line comprises a chair, a two seats bench and a chaise-longue with generous backrests, combined with softly upholstered poufs, creating a family of soft modular seatings, that reflect the friendly spirit of the collection. The different sizes of the poufs and backrests, each available in two heights, allow multiple combinations matching the varied needs of contemporary and multipurpose spaces: from relaxation areas to airport lounges, and through to latest-generation co-working spaces. A turning tablet can also be added to the configuration.
Manuela Busetti and Andrea Garuti meet while studying Industrial Design at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan.
Already during the academic years they face together the design issues and in 2004, in the year of the XX Compasso d’Oro ADI, their project, developed for the degree thesis, “Double”( an innovative cooler bag made of neoprene) is selected and published in the section “Progetto Giovane”.
