The structure of the Kepi chair welcomes the comfort of the bergère. The classic function of the chair for reading or relaxation is guaranteed by the height of the backrest, the comfortable lumbar backrest and the elegant pouf. Kepi, an armchair and bergère, is seating with a strong personality and unexpected design. The asymmetrical shape and precise design enhance its rounded lines, creating powerful character as well as comfort. In the bergère version, the vaguely northern style meets tradition with unexpected harmony. The exposed supporting structure made of bleached ash wood becomes its characteristic trait, while the comfortable armrest counters its purposeful restraint. Its frank elegance makes it perfect for the home and contract environment. Also available with base in varnished metal. Fully removable covers.
