Blog Widget by LinkWithin

“Piana” is a new folding chair created by Alessi using cutting edge material and technology and which accesses the manufacturing expertise of Lamm and the clever design of David Chipperfield. Light, sturdy, practical and ecological, this top-quality ‘Made in Italy’ project, available in many colors, is described by David Chipperfield as possessing a “visual expression that is indicative in its simplicity of the function and role of the item itself, bestowing the chair a character of eternity.” “Piana” is not only intended for public places; it is also suitable for private use: in the dining room as well as in the kitchen, in the study or on the terrace, in the children’s bedroom as well as in the garden. “Piana”  is a simple folding chair made out of polypropylene with glass fibre. The three parts of the chair rotate around a single axis and the finely engineered supporting structure and mechanism are concealed within the molded components. The matte finish and tactile qualities of the polypropylene render the chair both comfortable and robust. It folds completely flat and is horizontally stackable”.
