Adagio PoufDesign: Note (2023)
In the world of music, the term adagio dictates that a piece should be played at a slow and leisurely pace. And it is this sense of serenity that inspired the designers at NOTE to create a series of benches and poufs that exude a relaxed appearance and sense of fluidity. Quality handcraftsmanship, too, calls for calm and deliberation. Otherwise it simply would not be possible to bring ADAGIO's design details to life with such unerring precision.
Effortless – the first word that the NOTE designers think of to describe their collaboration with Wittmann. It references both the quality of craftsmanship and the way that design ideas take shape at the company’s workshops. In the case of ADAGIO, the designers' vision was to make the graphic sweeping lines that give the models in the series their personality look as effortless as an artist's brushstrokes.
Available in three sizes, the poufs in the ADAGIO series are the perfect embodiment of this effortlessness. The organic, flowing design infuses the pieces with a serene yet animate appearance – something that was transferred to the upholstered furniture by Wittmann with such perfection that there can be no doubt as to the intended ease and lightness. Still, the self-assurance with which the lines sweep across the furniture is anything but easy to achieve: the leather finish – only available for the poufs in the ADAGIO series – brings out the design masterfully. Each curved section is cut separately by hand and – redolent of Hoffmann's legendary CLUB 1910 armchair – with individually stitched piping over gently cambered foam welt cord. This creates a unique sculptural look for the leather version. The poufs, as well as the ADAGIO benches, are upholstered with precisely executed quilting. It almost goes without saying that they also feature pocket springs and a carefully composed cold foam structure. ADAGIO once again attests to the exceptional craftsmanship that Wittmann has been cultivating and perfecting for many decades.
