Capo Lounge Armchair by Neri & Hu for De La Espada was initially designed for the Italian restaurant Capo in Shanghai. Based on a basilica, the interior design concept of the restaurant features old-world charm, including a masonry enclosure and handsomely crafted detailing. The chair series also takes on those qualities of heritage—the simple and modern form is enriched with tailoring details that evoke old-world sensibilities and craftsmanship.
The Capo armchair maintains a well-balanced equilibrium between sophistication and utility, between classic and contemporary aesthetic. The Capo series also includes Capo Dining Chair with and without arms and Capo Barstool in two heights.
Available in American black walnut, American white oak, or European Ash in a range of finishes, and a range of fabric and leather options. Leather belting strap arms in black or brown with brass-colored PVD detailing.
