17/05/2021 - Zanotta proposes an unprecedented reading of the Maggiolina armchair by Marco Zanuso, launching the version with upholstered elements covered in fabric, in accordance with the original design of 1947.
The armchair, with ergonomic and welcoming comfort, looks even more contemporary because of the material contrast between the fabric of the cushions, the cowhide of the armrests and the body and the metal of the structure. In production by Zanotta since 1972, it is among the bestselling products icon of the brand, a symbol of Italian 'good design', a functional and sustainable product, designed to last over time.
The chaise longue designed in 1947 by Marco Zanuso, the great Milanese designer tireless experimenter of materials and technologies applied to design, was for the time an innovative project, which abandoned the traditional concept of the armchair with a padded structure and the use of artisan techniques, to introduce a new constructive system designed for industrial serial production.
Maggiolina's design is based on the functional breaking down of elements: an elegant tubular stainless-steel structure (18/8 polished or black painted steel or with natural or black nickel-satin finish); a semi-rigid shell in cowhide pigmentato 90 and two soft cushions with goose down padding for the back and in polyurethane / Dacron Du Pont for the seat.
