Quantity
"Piana" is a 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 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." David Chipperfield says that "After careful research into historic and contemporary folding chairs, the concept for "Piana" focused on a simple, iconic, general-purpose folding chair, easily recognisable as such. The design aimed to produce a well-made chair in a material which expresses its utilitarian and transient nature. "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 moulded components. The matt finish and tactile qualities of the polypropylene render the chair both comfortable and robust. It folds completely flat and is horizontally stackable".
