Colos Split - design by Francesco Meda
The collection is designed by Francesco Meda and created by the union of two similar synthetic materials but with a different composition.
SPLIT is a chair with original and innovative lines. Thanks to a reduced use of materials, SPLIT is thin and light, distinguished by a soft and elastic body conjugated to a more rigid and lasting base. The use of two different materials allows to customize the product and to adapt it to any projects and different uses; also, choosing countless color combinations, for the frame and shell, increase the possibilities to use the collection. Entirely made in Italy, as all COLOS products, SPLIT was presented for the first time at the Salone Del Mobile 2016.
