Product Story

Product Story

The name Sotto is based on the Italian "sotto voce", meaning quiet or private. The Sotto executive chair breathes new life into the desk/task category with a design that creates a unique and subtle harmony between comfortable work chair, sculptural objet d'art and coveted status symbol. Like heirloom-quality briefcases and handbags, Sotto stresses fine materials expertly crafted into beautiful forms that gain even more character over time. Sotto is offered in two heights, two arm options and an armless version, two upholstery stitch details, three base finishes and an optional headrest for the highback.
