The Satao collection features strikingly unique and surprisingly wide seatbacks. The unconventional proportions and silhouette is inspired by glorious elephant ears, thus the collection is named after one of the most venerable African elephants, Satao.
This clever design is refined by soft circular shapes, distinctive by design, versatile by functionality. The Satao Collection is made to be lightweight without compromising anything from enduring durability. Each piece is also very light, thanks to the mesh metal surfaces. The pieces transition seamlessly from indoor to outdoor living, perfect for that So-Cal sunshine.
They add coziness to outdoor spaces while adding outdoor charm when used inside. Wider seatbacks allow users to lounge in different sitting positions. Just add your favorite cushions, sit back with a cocktail and you’re all set. The collection consists of a chair, counter stool, barstool, and lounge chair. The Satao chair and the lounge chair are designed to be stackable. Round seat pads are available as an option and they are also suitable for outdoor use.
Steel frame painted in polyester powder.

Simone Viola was born in Mendrisio, Switzerland in 1985. After a rigorous training in industrial design in Milan and through his collaboration during various architectural and design studies, he began to gain experience in Switzerland and abroad. In 2011, he founded the Simone Viola Design Studio, focusing on industrial projects for furniture and accessories. His philosophy leans toward research on the materials and technical aspects related to the development of the project, conceptually guided by historical and artistic references. This approach produces the most natural connection to contemporary design, where the object is not the expression of a trend, but a long-lasting fusion of form and the intended use. Soft, natural elegant shapes and an elevated attention to details characterizes his work and a continuous optimization of the development phase allows the realization of high quality and generously accommodating products.
