This sensitive interpretation of the director’s chair was created by Michele De Lucchi for the Unicredit Pavilion in the Porta Nuova business district in central Milan. The designer made a deliberate choice to use natural beech, a strong and durable wood, with a high-profile stainless steel folding mechanism. The entire construction process took place within the Cassina carpentry unit, using state-of-the-art machinery. The company’s master craftsmen took over when it came time to add the final details. These, and the assembly of the piece were all executed by hand. The quality of the design can be seen in the chair’s light-weight silhouette, conferred by the tapered frame and the arm-rests. Meantime, the back features very comfortable-looking padding. The decision to use natural wood treated with a low-gloss varnish enhances the warmth of the material. The visible folding mechanism highlights how functional this chair is in any setting including, of course, the home, where space might be at a premium.
