Designed by Emilio Nanni, Kepi is a tub chair with a bold character and a startlingly beautiful design. Its asymmetric shape and the severity of its design both exalt its rotundity – it is a comfortable yet impressive piece of furniture. Something borrowed, something new: the earmark of this item is its open bodywork in blanched ash, whilst the comfortable yet quirky armrest is a delightful foil to its staidness. Its urbane panache makes it an ideal choice for home décor and contract projects alike. Fully removable covers.
