Pato is a prime example of our focus on sustainability and protecting the environment, reflected in a chair that’s 100% renewable and recyclable. All components can be incorporated into future furniture production, thus contributing to a circular economy by minimising the use of materials, resources, waste and pollution.
Merging traditional production methods with cutting-edge technology, Pato is a human-centric, highly versatile series of multi-purpose functional furniture that draws on our in-depth experience with materials, immaculate detailing and heritage of fine craftsmanship. Allowing us to apply our high standards of texture, finish and carpentry techniques to an array of materials in addition to wood for products aimed at a mass market.
With its clean lines and curves, Pato echoes the ethos of Danish-Icelandic design duo Welling/Ludvik. Demonstrating their belief that good design has the ability to be interesting, even when reduced to its most simple form. Where anything extraneous is eliminated and every detail has a purpose.
Together we spent nearly three years developing the shell structure to have a soft surface that’s also wear and tear resistant. Enhancing the chair’s ability to optimally conform to the user’s body is a subtle beveled edge. A technique from classic cabinetmaking, which gives the chair a sense of handcrafted finesse. Each Pato is detailed and finished by hand by our highly skilled crafts people, who refine the beveled edge and the silky, resilient surface. Setting a new standard for the execution and finish of polypropylene.
Since the success of its initial launch, we’ve expanded Pato into an extensive collection of variants, featuring armchairs, barstools, office swivel chairs and a long list of more, with frame options in wood, steel or painted steel. Including upholstered versions in fabric or leather to increase the possibilities for a more personalised visual statement.
As a result, Pato meets the diverse needs of a global market. From large-scale public arenas, such as airports, to executive environmens, collaborative work settings, multi-purpose retail complexes, formal and informal settings within the hospitality sector as well as private dining and relaxing. Pato in its purist form in polypropylene is equally suited for indoor as well as outdoor seating, in colours that complement our signature use of wood, leather and fabric.
