TOTEM is a project born from the collaboration of young designers Davide Bonanni with Accademia, a leading Italian design company producing high quality furniture.
A collection of poufs that surprise both for functionality, both for aesthetic adopted: a perfect combination of sophisticated formal lines and traditional materials.
A series of poufs that could also be stacked, creating a sculpture with a stronger aesthetic impact: a “TOTEM design“, characterized by solid and harmonious lines.
The idea, says designer Bonanni, stems from the desire to revisit the use of the cord, material that has become over the years a distinguished material of productions of Accademia: the cord, it is not woven but rolled all over the body of the object.
The poufs are stackable completions available in different sizes declined in several colors and suitable to furnish any decor.
