Omar De Biaggio got his start by cold-calling furniture stores and wholesale dealers he found listed in Elle Décor magazine. A handful agreed to see his prototypes, so he jumped in his car and drove to meeting after meeting. After his career-changing road trip, De Biaggio returned home with commissions for 300 chairs. “When you show something to passion-driven people who understand why you designed it, and it finds a place in their hearts, then your product will be successful,” says the designer. Omar De Biaggio named his Bacco Stool (2014) after Bacchus ( Bacco in Italian), the Roman god of wine, because it’s a source of relaxation, a way to enjoy a well-deserved rest after a hard day’s work. “This is a multipurpose, modern and elegant chair,” says the designer, “with soft lines and, above all, a cozy shape, thanks to 3-D molding technology. ” The result is a curved shell that looks delicate but withstands frequent use. Bacco is padded with crushproof rubber foam and upholstered with stain-resistant fabric that’s soft to the touch. Made in Italy.
