POLET By Twils
High-back armchair bed with armrests
Twils is presenting Polet, the functional but atypical armchair/bed designed by Achille Castiglioni in 1992 and which Twils has decided to re-edit. Polet has a solid beech structure with black lacquered finish fitted with a brass joint offering four different reclined positions.
The idea of Twils making a new edition of Polet came about in 2020, during lockdown, from a conversation between Giovanna Castiglioni, narrator and founder alongside her brother Carlo of the Achille Castiglioni Foundation dedicated to her father, and Matteo Ragni, art director of Twils.
“Twils has always been strongly design-oriented” - says Vilma Carnieletto, co-owner and director of communications of the company - “I therefore wholeheartedly agreed to the idea of reviving such a significant and important piece by the great Achille Castiglioni. Polet sums up and conveys all the main contents of our brand: it is a comfortable and functional armchair that also converts to a bed, offering a design with pure, decisive lines. In particular it has a textile component, which can be interpreted with elegance and creativity, Twils-style.”
