DESIGN BY ALBERTO LIEVORE, 2021
Like an assistant that monitors our rest and simplifies our lives, Valet is a versatile object as well as a chair, armchair, pouf, valet stand and clothes hanger. It features soft and curved, yet sleek lines; with small dimensions. The refined aesthetics are inspired by a taut softness that accommodates and supports in an understated and elegant manner. The high backrest, on the one hand, can be used as a valet stand, whereas the single armrest, on the other, provides excellent support for the lower back and neck, allowing your head to rest comfortably. Valet seems almost suspended above the floor thanks to its dark, recessed feet.
