On creating this masterpiece, have worked together two young and talented designers Jonathan Levien and Nipa Doshi, husband and wife. Coming from different cultures and having different backgrounds, Nipa from India, while Jonathan from Scotland. Together they have beautifully merged the best of both, implementing visual beauty, industrial precision, technological materials, and versatility. Their products are distinctive by functional qualities, architectural forms, and pleasant tactile feelings. The duo has created works for leading manufacturers of design furnishings, like B&B Italia, Moroso, Cappellini, and other international brands.

The armchair Do-Maru takes the name after ancient samurai armor, constructed with rigid leather plates. It is distinguished by exquisite modern design with a futuristic appeal and ergonomic forms, nothing better for a stylish home office or a modern minimalistic living room! 

The base is a combination of steel profiles on the front legs and die-cast aluminum on the back legs, painted Chrome Black, Matt Black, or Pewter. The entire structure, backrest, and sitting is made of cold flexible polyurethane foam Bayfit®. The exterior/back structure is made of rigid polyurethane proposed in several colors: White, Dove Gray, or Anthracite. The interior padding can be upholstered with fabric or leather at choice.

Best wishes,
