The Donatella Chair – The Haas Brothers for VERSACE HOME
The Haas Brothers design studio meets the extreme luxury of Versace giving birth to The Donatella Chair: a futuristic throne made of golden honeycomb and black leather, truly inspired to the rock-glamourous style of Donatella Versace. Strong design characterized by fluid lines, in sharp contrast with the typical neo-classical or neo-pop pieces of the Versace Home brand. With this chair the two brothers Nikolai and Simon Haas show their intent of revolutionizing the concept of classic luxury.
