The folds mark the foam, shaping its contours and giving emphasis to the armrests, thus creating the identity of the settee, which was named after the Pai-Pai fan which itself has a characteristic rounded shape. The Païpaï collection was designed to offer the best possible seat comfort thanks to the height of the back and the judicious use of high-performance foams.
Païpaï is a project which unfolded from a simple gesture : folding a piece of paper to create a closed shape. And thus a visibly comfortable cocoon seat is born.
