By following these principles, Scab Design creates pieces of furniture in which you'll be able to find yourself, wearing your everyday life and adding to the highest design a secret element: their sublime creativity. When the technique becomes real art.
Chairs like the Zebra model technopolymer, created by the designer Luisa Battaglia is a seat with a minimal elegance that presents soft and ergonomic lines, for welcoming and supporting at best the back of the user. The architect Luisa Battaglia has designed an eco-friendly product, the components of which are in fact rapidly separable and completely recyclable. It is a complement of fully flexible furnishing and with seven different types of structure, making the Zebra chair perfect to decorate hotels, bars, public and private spaces. The shell in recyclable polymer supports the seat with a glossy outer surface and scratch-resistant matte interior. The proposed colours are very trendy, with a selection of very chic nuances like linen, taupe, blue and anthracite.
The Zebra chair is also available in a Natural-transparent version: transparent polycarbonate for the body and beech wood for the structure (both materials are very appreciated by the Scab Design brand). As for the polycarbonate chairs, Scab Design uses the polycarbonate Makrolon® by Bayer MaterialScience. Makrolon® polycarbonate plates are key elements for the realization of transparent chairs very resistant to breakage and with an excellent fire protection, making them safe even for public locations.
