Designed in 1951 by Italian architect and designer Marco Zanuso for Arflex, the Lady armchair won the gold medal at the IX Milan Triennale in the same year. Today, the look of the Lady armchair has been given a contemporary update via a new offering of fabrics designed by Raf Simons and introduced to Cassina’s Everest collection.
The chair is seen as a modern icon, the pinnacle of innovation that turned the traditional manufacturing technique for making armchairs and sofas on its head, with each part manufactured separately and then assembled; seat, backrests and sides with different padding densities depending on the support required by the pressure exerted by the body.
The chair’s steel base is available in three different colours/finishes: matte basalt finish, brass chrome and black chrome and comes in a variety of non-removable fabric or leather upholstery. Its also available in an iconic edition with checked black and white upholstery and matte basalt base.
The chair is available through Space Furniture. Shop the range here.
