Genya armchairs combined with E5000 study benches
Located in the original core of Palazzo Vecchio, dating from the early 15th century, the great Sala dei Duecento was conceived to house Florence Council meetings. The 65 Council seats and benches, as well as 36 public chairs, all created by LAMM, have been chosen for the essential design aligned with a sober contemporary taste and their great ergonomic and functional performances. Genya armchair, designed by Dante Bonuccelli, is characterised by a minimalist elegant style and a compact shape when closed, with its components hidden within the volume, while seat and arms open, if needed, with a cushioned closure synchronized patented movement. Every seat combines with a custom E5000 study bench, with double closure panel, provided with electric power supply, an electronic vote keypad and a microphone.
