Maggiolina Lounge Chair, 1947

Maggiolina Lounge Chair by Marco Zanuso for Zanotta

Originally designed for a competition held by the MoMa in New York, Marco Zanuso's 1947 Maggiolina Lounge Chair has remained an icon of twentieth-century design since. Shying away from the more traditional artisan-built chairs of the period, Zanuso experimented with new methods of industrial construction - with the idea of an inexpensive and dismantlable armchair, accessible to all. To paraphrase Aurelio Zanotta, he describes Maggiolina Lounge Chair as “a Cinderella that turns into a Princess”.

Maggiolina features a curved steel tubing structure from which a burlap ‘bag’ is hung, the ‘pockets’ of which contain two panels of plywood to support the two padded cushions that make up the seat and backrest. 

A matching pouf is available, which will feature the same frame finish and be upholstered in the same fabric as chosen for the chair. 

Please see the accompanying PDF's for a full list of upholstery options for the sling of the chair, and fabric and leather upholstery options for the body.
