The Ladle Family is a series of armchairs that, as the name gives away, are inspired by the shape of the specific serving utensil. With a high backrest and a spoon-shaped seat, the furniture designs show just how comfortable such a form can be for the human body. In a way, the Ladle Family series is a tweak on the traditional egg or bucket chair. There is a retro feel about the designs after all.

Designed by Luca Nichetto for Arflex, the Ladle Family series is comprised of three different models, each of which boast different backrests and bases. These elements can be mixed and matched for a more customized design. Made out of metal, wood and fabric, the Ladle Family comes in a variety of colors as well.
