Arete is a system of steel and coach hide chairs designed by Franco Poli and produced by matteograssi in two sizes (width cm 60 and cm 72).

Aretè is a natural evolution within the development of the project born with Loom, in which the topological and geometrical qualities of the coach hide material were applied to screens and partitions (called Loomy and T.Net).

Arete is proposed in two sizes, a Large one fit for waiting rooms and sitting areas, and a Standard one meant to be placed behind a desk or a table.

It has to be pointed out that the “technical – aesthetical” concept applied to the coach hide of the Arete project is patented and offers the opportunity of turning the two-dimensional feature of the leather surface into three-dimensional shapes without the need of any seams…It is by virtue of this quality that the collection was called Arete' (from the Greek virtue).
