Superleggera Chair

est favourites from Cassina

The Superleggera Chair came to represent modernity in Italian design: with its new design standing as a model for Italy’s new industry. Superleggera was a “first” in terms of its design in that it stood for a moment of great transformation made possible by real collaboration between the designer and skilled manufacturers. The challenge was to reduce the triangular cross section to a bare minimum designer Gio Ponti said: “the more minimal the shape, the more expressive the shape becomes”.
