Audrey, the eclectic seat combining aluminium and plastic and designed by Piero Lissoni is a versatile and contemporary chair which because of its simple, clean lines due to a special die-casting process is composed of only two parts and made without welding. It is multifunctional and adaptable to all uses - indoor, outdoor, the home, office and contract - with its wonderfully rich range of combinations (about 50 in all). Audrey comes in either the chair or the armchair (with arms) version with seat and back in various colours of plastic and the aluminium frame has three versions: painted aluminium, painted white or painted black. This seat can also be used outdoors.

Kartell Audrey Chair (Priced Each, Sold in Sets of 2) Designed by:
- Piero Lissoni
Born in Italy, Piero Lissoni is a well-known designer and architect with a degree from the Polytechnico of Milan. In 1986 Lissoni founded the Studio Lissoni. Lissoni has worked with design brands such as Boffi, Cassina, Kartell, Living Divani and Flos on a wide diversity of designs of furniture and lighting. Lissoni’s projects are often full-scale interiors and architecture of hotels, offices and showrooms, yachts and private homes. He is inspired by many different elements but also designers such as Arne Jacobsen.
Piero Lissoni’s design principle is never to design for a specific function or purpose, but to design for human beings. His designs for Alessi include the very minimal Birillo Collection of objects. In 2004 Knoll introduced Lissoni’s Divina Lounge Collection, originally designed for his longtime client, Living Divina. It features clean lines and exceptional comfort and appears to float in mid-air, with razor-thin legs supporting the chrome-plated steel frame.
