The Shell Chair, Elevated
Flexform takes the concept of the shell chair to a new level of sophistication with Guscio, a comfortable and versatile armchair that epitomizes casual luxury.
A powerful encapsulation of elegance and inviting warmth, the Guscio Armchair, designed by Antonio Citterio for Flexform, possesses enveloping lines and impeccable construction, features that enhance its natural aptitude for effortlessly furnishing both residential and hospitality spaces—like lounge areas, corporate offices, and boutiques.
The structure is an enveloping shell made of structural polyurethane foam, while the seat cushion is in goose down with a core insert in crushproof material. To ensure the utmost comfort, the Guscio Soft version comes with additional padding in the seat back and an extra layer of Dacron and memory foam. The sophisticated aesthetic language that distinguishes the Guscio armchair is also expressed in the design of the base, which can either be in solid wood—Canaletto walnut or ash, in various colors—or metal, in a number of finishes.
- Frame in rigid polyurethane and foam polyurethane
- Seat cushions filled with down and a resilient inner core
- Throw pillows down-filled, on request with upcharge
- Legs available in Canaletto walnut, ash in various colors, or metal in a number of finishes
- Non-removable fabric or leather upholstery
A family affair, now in its third generation, Flexform is a modern furniture company founded in 1959 in the Brianza furniture manufacturing district in Northern Italy. Today the brand represents an almost magical distillation of elegance, comfort, and inconspicuous luxury.
