Konstantin Grcic designed his geometrically shaped chair Palio for hotels, restaurants - as well as for private dining. This piece of furniture's most notable feature is its cupped seat of core leather suspended in a stainless steel-tube frame. Core leather is commonly used for saddles, belts and horse tack, because it is thick and hard-wearing. Konstantin Grcic also appreciates this robust material, which has been worked with great precision by Italian craftsmen.

The designer says, "It is an attractive, very sturdy leather that gains in beauty as it ages. What I really like about leather is how well it can be shaped three-dimensionally, like we know from shoes and bicycle seats. Because of these characteristics, we can completely dispense with upholstery and lining materials."

Explaining the functional details of his design, he says, "The seat shell simply consists of two stable leather layers that adapt to the body of the sitter, while still providing support. This makes the chair very comfortable."

Palio is also impressive from an aesthetic point of view, its nylon handle lending the chair a modern, almost sporty look. Furthermore, when a number of chairs are lined up, for example in a restaurant, the striking backrests sets unique visual accents. The chair is available in the colours black and natural, and the chair legs are made of matt-black anodized aluminum.
