Ila is a space, a micro-space, almost a sensual micro-architecture, where we come to curl up. Practically a refuge, its form extends to create a space that belongs only to the person who takes place there. This extremely comfortable armchair has been designed with very simple and refined lines, a classic and solid base but evoking lightness, soft and harmonious angles, a wide seat, which make up a vocabulary of rhythmic shapes giving it its iconic character and irreparably giving it want to settle there.

I wanted to design an object with a very assertive silhouette that sits in the space and grabs attention. A nod to designer Joe Colombo’s historic Elda, Ila is a strong gesture of design, like a signature wherever it is positioned. In a place that would be inhabited by noise and agitation, Ila becomes a haven where you feel as though you are protected, where you can escape the tumult for a time. And as soon as no one is installed there, Ila becomes a sculpture for her place and offers herself to the gaze.

Ila is a sculpture.
Ila is protection.
Ila is iconic.

The "Ila" armchair collection, designed by Patrick Jouin iD for Pedrali, is available in several versatile models and in different colours. "Ila 2020" and "Ila 2021" have a monolithic base that allows swivel and thus reorient the seat axis and the viewing angle as desired. "Ila 2022" and "Ila 2023" have a four-legged steel tube base. These versions are available with or without the large headrest.

Ila armchairs received the award for best "Contract lounge seating" - Interior Design / Best of Year Awards 2020 - Product design.
