Mariani’s hm102 system is based on the concept of three basic components - a backrest, seat and single armrest - and combining these parts builds a family of ten different modules. Some are asymmetric and can assume different rotations, offering countless solutions and combinations, made up of armchairs, easy chairs, sofas, daybeds, benches and tables.
The range consists of perfectly proportioned, beautifully upholstered building blocks, acting as a simple grid to generate all kinds of seating typologies and functional compositions, thereby responding to various needs of the everyday user - making it adaptable and playful. The upholstered platforms appear to float on the light base frame; while the generous proportions of the armrest and backrest offer comfort and provide alternative working surfaces.
Colours and fabrics can be varied between blocks, with table tops in white laminate, walnut or oak veneer with solid edging, and standard base colours in black or white. Bespoke base colours and finishes can be specified, and power, data and charging units can be integrated.
