In an exclusive limited edition featuring light grey leather upholstery and a black nickel frame, this elegant Maggiolina Lounge Chair is a unique finish produced by Zanotta especially for The Conran Shop to celebrate the renowned chair’s 70th anniversary.
One of just 20 limited edition chairs, each Conran Maggiolina Chair features a commemorative plaque marking the issue number and the exclusive collaboration. The special edition Maggiolina has a strong, lightweight frame crafted from black nickel, showcasing a contemporary, industrial aesthetic that is then juxtaposed with the supple leather upholstered cushion pads in an exclusive light grey hue.
Support is offered by the polyurethane-stuffed seat pad and goose feather back rest, which are opulently covered in the premium light grey leather. The sling in which the seat pads sit is formed of strong calf skin hide, adding a relaxed edge to the clean lines of the exclusive black chrome structure.
Created by the great Milanese designer Marco Zanuso for a MoMA competition in 1947, the Maggiolina Chair marked the discarding of rigid geometry and an introduction to fluid lines and the ‘good form’ design ideology that was to emerge in the 1950s, immediately receiving international accolades on its release.
With an accompanying ottoman footrest that complements the chair’s design, this exclusive Conran Limited Edition Maggiolina Lounge Chair celebrates 70 years of the chair’s supreme comfort and innovative form.
