This special edition Capo Lounge Armchair by De La Espada is upholstered in a Manta Alentejana fabric, a traditional blanket from the Alentejo region of Portugal with a heritage reaching back over a century. The pattern and colours of the textile were carefully chosen, as was the alignment of the pattern across the chair, to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing composition.
The Capo chair takes on qualities of heritage, where the simple and modern form is enriched with tailoring details that evoke old-world craftsmanship
