Experimentation and research are at the basis of the project of small and large Mart armchairs, which were made with a new production technology using thermoformed leather. The footwear sector was the source of information consulted by the B&B Italia Centro Ricerche & Sviluppo, always careful to identify materials and technologies that respond the best to the peculiarities of individual projects. This is how thermoformed leather became a distinctive feature of Mart. The line consists of two types of chairs: one smaller and one wider. Three bases are contemplated: swivel (with a disk or cross base) and with a structure that allows the shell a double posture position which is more less inclined with just a simple manual movement. A product with a strong personality, Mart has a silhouette imprinted to convey the idea of relaxation. Only a few symbols were used for the creative advertising campaign to support the launch. Designer: Antonio Citterio Typology: Armchairs Collection: B&B Italia Year: 2003 A comfortable hollow shape, in two sizes, stands on a series of bases that create the overall personality. The combination of these elements produces a family of armchairs that can be placed in various areas of the home. Everything issues from long-term experimentation centred on the production technology of thermoformed leather, starting from a plastic body that is inserted into a cold polyurethane foam mould, thus obtaining elasticity and comfort.
