W. Family

Designer Fabrizio Gallinaro

Reinterpreting the classic Windsor chair, adapting it to the contemporary spirit of Billiani. So was born W., which right from the choice of the name, declares the process of reduction and subtraction of which it is the result. Originating in England in the late eighteenth century and subsequently popular in America, the Windsor is one of the most prolific types of chair in the history of the design. It is characterised by its unmistakeable backrest with curved horizontal element and spindles that fit into the seat. It is precisely on these elements, and also more generally on all the elements that make up the chair, that Gallinaro worked, reducing the material to a minimum and redesigning the angles and ratios between the parts. Classically contemporary, W. comes in a series of variants including rocking chair, the first ever rocking chair made by Billiani.
