A chair with character

Pininfarina and Reflex present in world premiere at the Milan Furniture Fair an innovative chair for home: Vela. It is the second result of the partnership following the great success met by Sit, elegant seat that marked the beginning of the partnership in the Nineties’.


Vela is a chair distinguished by a unique character, conceived for the most refined and elegant domestic spaces. The Pininfarina team has in fact worked to convey dynamic and sensual lines to the product, able to transmit a strong sense of lightness. Vela is made of two independent shells: the seatback shell has in fact been suspended on the seat shell.

An accurate choice of the materials – smooth leather for the external shell and nabuk or leather for the interior – emphasizes the contrast among the surfaces. Strong is the link with the car bodies: the exterior, characterized by a plastic effect, communicates protection while the interior, softer, transmits a sense of comfort. The chair legs have been carefully designed: the smoothed section accentuates the combination of solidity and lightness, the features characterizing the product.

The perfect combination of contrasts

“The furniture is an ideal sector for the application of our design. The combination of innovative technologies with classical design makes our furniture solutions unique and long-lasting”.
