RITO is the Désirée armchair that skilfully combines opposites: the lightness and essentiality of the tubular metal structure and the softness and generosity of the padded seat. A magnificent example of "sophisticated simplicity". Its silhouette looks as if it is flying and its shape is, at once, compact and delicate.
Statement of the jury
In the »Rita« chair designed by Matteo Thun & Antonio Rodriguez, the thick upholstery seems to float in the air thanks to the filigree round tube frame. In combination with the minimalist design language, however, the interplay looks wonderfully timeless and elegant.
