FLEXFORM is proud to announce that ADI, the permanent Observatory of Design, has selected the A.B.C.D. for the 2015 ADI Design Index.

Designed by Architect Antonio Citterio, the armchair has been introduced during the 2014 edition of Il Salone del Mobile. It is a great satisfaction for the company to be involved in such an important contest like Premio Compasso d’Oro ADI 2016. FLEXFORM has also decided to join the traveling exhibit organized by ADI, where the ABCD will be displayed together with all the other selected products. All these items will be shown both in Milan, at the new headquarter of ADI, and in Rome, at the Orto Botanico, to bring people closer to the world of design. The A.B.C.D. armchair represents a restyling of the iconic A.B.C. armchair, designed by Antonio Citterio in 1996. The brand new version looks more modern thanks to some important technical changes. The metal armrest has been removed, and the armchair is now based on a patented extendible mechanism which makes the movement of the seat cushion possible and the sitting more comfortable. The idea of a low seat height is very contemporary and the same is for the square cushions together with the new metal structure.
