porgy chair

1971

Arredamenti Fumagalli

 

The chair, in lacquered wood or in a natural walnut finish, is characterized by a fluid and continuous composition both in plan and in elevation. The backrest joins directly to the semi-circular basement, through two sinuous components, the base is connected to the seat, with a central element. In a first version of the chair, this element continued up to the backrest, but in the construction phase, it was removed to give the chair an even greater lightness. The chair reaches a height of 75 cm with the backrest, for a seat 53 cm large and 50 cm deep.
