2016 saw the completion of the “Piuma” project by Piero Lissoni. The chair is one of the most revolutionary and enterprising products in Kartell’s repertoire of technology and materials. By applying its injection moulding techniques in a sophisticated new way that was designed especially for this material, an exclusive in the world of industrial design, Kartell has managed to create a chair that measures just a few millimetres thick (2 mm max), resulting in an ultra-light product (barely 2.2 kg). It is the first time that a material containing carbon fibre has been injection moulded, and for an aesthetic, stylish product at that. Thanks to this unprecedented mix of materials, the Piuma is not only extremely light and slender but also incredibly durable, flexible and suitable for outdoor use.

MATERIALS:

  • Complex Thermoplastic Polymer with Carbon Fibre

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Width: 62 cm / 24.375 inch
  • Height: 77 cm / 30.375 inch
  • Depth: 54 cm / 21.25 inch
  • Seat Height: 43 cm / 16.875 inch
  • Seat Width: 50 cm / 19.625 inch
  • Arm Height: 65 cm / 25.625 inch

Piero Lissoni

Piero Lissoni

Italy, 1956

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.
