Larga is a minimalist chair created by Italian architect Francesca Torzo, which is one of 10 pieces being presented at Brussels-based gallery MANIERA. For some time, Francesca Torzo has been studying and analysing the visual languages of architecture, with a particular focus on experimenting with the potential of materials. Yet, it is only the first time that Torzo is approaching furniture.
At the invitation of MANIERA, she conceived and developed a furniture collection in which she continued this process of experimentation and projected the materials into a poetic, emotional dimension. For Torzo, developing this collection was another way of reflecting on human life and the way we use and interact with the objects and space around us. The collection can therefore be seen as a reflection on consciousness, character and movement. With this collection Torzo wanted to create objects that facilitate meaningful relations between people and their worlds.
