Aston Cord Indoor Armchair
Rodolfo Dordoni design
Aston and Aston “Cord” share the same design roots and aesthetic language and are pieces whose compact size and graceful lines are a boon to creating innovative interior design projects that express continuity and consistency of style between interior and exterior settings.
The Aston “Cord” Indoor armchair offers a different take on the same theme through the use of different materials. The painted metal frame is finished in Pewter color and the seat back is in a special braided 7 mm diameter polypropylene cord, available in two color variations: light grey and dark brown. The Aston “Cord” Indoor armchair is available with and without arms, ready to lend its fresh, informal personality to the creation of interior design projects where the interaction moves freely between indoors and outdoors.
ARMCHAIR WITHOUT ARMRESTS

The braided polypropylene cord utilized in crafting the Aston “Cord” products is made of Flyer, a special yarn designed for the production of residential and contract uphol- stery textiles, that is ideal for outdoor use. Soft and non-pilling, it is resistant to sunlight, mold and bacteria. Made of hypoallergenic and nontoxic substances, the material has successfully passed rigorous testing of its antibacterial and antifungal properties. It offers excellent resistance to sunlight, salt water, chlorine, acids, sun screens and tanning lotions, perspiration, stains, and wear. Washable at 40° (104°f), it does not shrink and does not require ironing. It is totally recyclable and is Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certified (tested for harmful substances).
Air texturization process (Taslanizing) that lends an appearance similar to that of natural fibers.
