Neri & Hu’s own product line, ‘neri&hu’, represents a different aesthetic that is rooted in cultural provocation. With an intention to question the potential in “Chinese design”, neri&hu seeks to alternatives to the normative. neri&hu is the reinterpretation of the beauty in the raw material, changing perceptions through what is revealed, examining history and its path, or capturing an ordinary scene in a snapshot.
This special edition Capo Lounge Armchair is uphol-stered in a Manta Alentejana, a traditional blanket from the Alentejo region of Portugal with a herit-age reaching back over a century. The pattern and colours of the textile were carefully chosen, as was the alignment of the pattern across the chair, to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing composition.
The Capo is a well-balanced equilibrium between so-phistication and utility, between classic and con-temporary aesthetic.
