If White were a model it would be Anita Ekberg, being just as seductive and slinky as the Swedish actress of the swinging sixties. By virtue of its generous forms, it follows the path traced by the Green and Blue chairs already present in the Billiani collection and it is inspired by the Nordic design of the Sixties. Probably going against the trend, White stems from the desire to retrace historical concepts in chair design, adding contemporary language and advanced production techniques; all three pieces have in common the characteristic of a chunky leg, which rises from the classic 3 cm thick to 4 cm; these are statement pieces but also simple and gentle chairs, comfortable, practical and reassuring. Though strikingly bold, White has deliberately large and soft shapes like the pin-ups that appeared on the covers of the magazines of the time. White is made of ashwood in the side and armchair versions, both available with upholstery applied directly on top of the wooden seat.
