Borgo Vignamaggio, midway between Florence and Siena in the spectacular Chianti hills, is the location of a new theatre that stands out for its attention to detail, material combinations and atmosphere, in keeping with the spirit of the surrounding environment. Thanks to the project by MDU Architects, Patrice Taravella (landscape architect) and Emmanuelle Sebillet (interior design), the former wine cellar, the result of a 19th century extension to the 16th century villa, begins a new life hosting events and meetings. Taking pride of place under the brick vault are the elegant C100 – Baldanzi & Novelli armchairs. Chosen in the low backrest version with sides down to the floor, the theatre seats are distinctive for their linear design and remarkable ability to embellish any environment, whether historic or modern. The armchairs are fully padded and upholstered in Kvadrat – Steelcut Trio 3. The installation, in straight rows, took place both on the sloping floor and on tiers, with the structure fixed to the ground.
