Norma chair

Molteni&C production 2018/2019
Design Giulio Iacchetti

“I tried to restore a sense of “normality” to this chair, underlining the “norms” by which good, reassuring, geometrically solid furniture is made, with its purpose instantly recognisable. At the same time, however, I focused on the construction details: observe the design of the backrest, which is inserted harmoniously into the rear uprights, or the perfectly shaped solid wooden seat, and even the chair’s stackability: an unusual feature for an all-wooden chair, but an absolute must for a chair to be used in public spaces.” – Giulio Iacchetti

 

 

 

D.270.2 Armchair

Molteni&C production 1970/2014
Design Gio Ponti

“And here is the new wide chair with a narrow and foldable seat”. So wrote Gio Ponti in 1970 when describing the launch of a chair that differed from all the others.  chair for conversation, reading a book or watching TV. Minimal overall dimensions, versatile, movable. Light but solid, easy, comfortable and affordable. A chair for everyone, for every occasion, for a house that adapts to our needs.
