“And here is the new wide chair with a narrow and foldable seat,” so wrote Italian designer Gio Ponti in 1970 when describing the launch of a chair that differed from all the others.
A chair for conversation, reading a book or watching TV. Minimal overall dimensions, versatile, movable. Light but solid, easy and comfortable. A chair for everyone, for every occasion, for indoor and outdoor use, for a house that adapts to our needs.
“To sit comfortably, crossing your legs, you need a small seat and lots of backrest, reclining like this,” said Gio Ponti.
This re-edition chair, produced by Molteni&C using original drawings from the Ponti archives, is foldable and perennially chic in a new finish and wood: wicker and natural ash.
The multilayer panel seat and backrest is covered in woven wicker for a textural detail and offers superior comfort and style.
Available to view for a limited time only at The Conran Shop Chelsea.
