Piana
BY DAVID CHIPPERFIELD
FOR ALESSI
“After meticulous research into the different types of historic and contemporary folding chairs, the Piana concept focused on a versatile folding chair which is both simple and elegant, with easily recognizable characteristics. The purpose of the design task was to create a chair of high quality workmanship using a material that would express its utilitarian and ephemeral nature. Piana is a simple folding chair with a frame made out of polypropylene and glass fibre”. (David Chipperfield)
“From the creative point of view I consider this to be a master-stroke in a sector that is massively difficult for the designer: a type of product that over the years, numerous artists have attempted but with precious few top-class results”. (Alberto Alessi)
