Roman architecture continues to inspire the design of our times

It could be a blooming flower and, at the same time, a timeless architectural work. The Coliseum chair designed by Alvaro Uribe for Slide is a tribute to Roman architecture which, despite centuries of history, remains strongly present through its legacies.

Inspired by the iconic arches of the Roman Colosseum, the Coliseum chair by Alvaro Uribe for the Italian company Slide, captures the timeless beauty of one of history’s most awe-inspiring architectural marvels. With an innovative approach to furniture design, strategic cuts adorn the sides of the chair, echoing the precise architectural detailing of Roman structures.

These cuts add depth and dimension while allowing air and water to flow through, making the chair suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The chair’s ergonomic design ensures optimal comfort and support, featuring a gently contoured seat and backrest that invite relaxation. Its sleek and minimalist silhouette enhances any contemporary space, making it an ideal addition to both indoor and outdoor settings.
