517 OMBRA TOKYO
- I Maestri
With the Ombra Tokyo chair, Charlotte Perriand came up with an iconic piece with great visual appeal and exquisite refinement, conjured from a single sheet of oak plywood, cut, folded and curved to evoke the Japanese origami tradition. This chair was first shown in 1953, its slim-line seat being an absolute first. Stackable, light, and functional, the Ombra Tokyo chair is the perfect synthesis of gesture, form, and technology, expressing to perfection Perriand’s design ethos. The constructional techniques applied by Cassina shapes the material in full respect of the original design, and its timeless personality.
