Discreet and essential, but also playful and imaginative, the Broncio line by designer Filippo Mambretti, winner in 2011 of the first edition of the Infiniti Design De-contest, acts as a bridge between the worlds of childhood and adulthood.
The Italian word “broncio” translates as “miff” or “pout” or “moodiness.” Simple volumes and limpidly essential lines draw the “miffed” expression of this series, which consists of a table and a stool with different heights.
Available in two forms, one with an openable seat, and in three colours yellow, grey and white, the stool is suitable for many different compositions. Being made of polyethylene, a material that is highly resistant to weathering, Broncio is ideal for contract furnishings and outdoor use.
SO WITH ALL THESE GREAT QUALITIES, WHY SO SULLEN?
So with all these great qualities, why so sullen? The affable name of Filippo Mambretti’s project comes from the cut that characterizes the lower part of the stool, like a cartoon mouth which is just a little disappointed, but perfect in its function as a footrest.
