Talo by Sebastian Herkner takes a new approach to the traditional small armchair – a must-have for any hotel. Discreet and distinctive, the design is a departure from all others, yet retaining a familiar form. Talo is extraordinarily comfortable, making it the ideal piece for a range of settings.The small two seater sofa combines perfectly with the armchair, emulating its comfort perfectly.
The roots of the mangrove tree have provided the starting point for this adaptable piece.
No detail has been left to chance: from the extra thick piping that runs across the top of the piece to the special two part cushion. However, the most characteristic element of Talo is in its legs that thrust up under the fabric, like the roots of a mangrove tree just visible above ground level as they form the trunk.
The legs are made of oak and can be ordered in a wide range of natural stains or vibrant colours like green or mango.
Sebastian has also designed a stylish cushion as an accessory to this, or other Sancal products.
Talo can be upholstered in fabric, synthetic or natural leather.
