Seventeen Gio Ponti 699 Superleggera Chairs by Cassina

Categories: , Creators: ,

Item Description

Incredibly lightweight and elegant, this innovative chair was designed by Gio Ponti in 1957 for Cassina. These chairs are in excellent vintage condition and marked with Cassina label. Seventeen chairs available, priced individually.
Inspired by traditional vernacular chairs produced in the Italian town of Chiavari, Ponti used state-of-the-art methods to create this chair. Crafted from light and stabile black dyed ashwood with a natural woven Indian cane seat, the struts forming the chair frame are slot together using Ponti’s own ingenious system.
Whilst aspiring to create the ultimate minimal chair, Gio Ponti was also committed to functionality and durability. In order to test the design, he threw a prototype from a four-storey building and was only satisfied when it landed intact.
