Mentiròsa is the result of a dynamic mix of creativity and company know-how, giving birth to a design that involved both designers and skilled manufactures.

Devoto asked Filippo Francescangeli,a successful emerging designer, to work with its technical team in order to create and show a product that could push the potential of the Solid Surfaceto its extreme structural limits. That’s how Mentiròsa was born. An high-technology seating element that, taking the best out of the materials it is made of, gives you a positive feedback as for ergonomy and aesthetic quality.

Mentiròsa has a wooden skin, an evocative and natural material. The structure core is in Solid Surface, an acrylic material that allowed deformation, thinning and manipulation thanks to a tailor-made vacuum-forming technique. Finally, the wooden surface was customized with a three-dimensional decorative technique. It was carved by a CNC cutter, drawing a pattern especially designed by the RT Roberto Terrinoni Graphic Studio team, that took care of all the product corporate elements and the events we took part in.
