The Superleggera. One of the true masterpieces of Gio Ponti, is a symbol of perfection and balance between solidity and lightness. Continuously produced by Cassina since 1957, it is the result of the search for Gio Ponti and the ability to experiment and processing of Cassina and its craftsmen. The name "Superleggera" is not fortuitous: it weighs just 1.7 kg and you lift just a finger. 

 

This chair came to represent modernity in Italian design: with its new design standing as a model for Italy’s new industry. Superleggera was a “first” in terms of its design in that it stood for a moment of great transformation made possible by real collaboration between the designer and skilled manufacturers. The challenge was to reduce the triangular cross section to a bare minimum Ponti said: “ the more minimal the shape, the more expressive the shape becomes”. A masterpiece whose exemplary lies in the correspondence between form and content, a spokesman for a new expression of the modern.

 

In addition to the version with frame in natural ashwood or lacquer finish in the colour white or black with seat in India cane, there are two more  versions:

  • frame in natural ashwood, white or black stained open pore ashwood with padded seat, fabric or leather upholstery;

  • frame in bicolour white / black lacquered ashwood with padded seat, upholstered exclusively in white or black leather.

 

This bicolour combination further underlines the concept of thinning and fading of the structure: “In twilight - Ponti said - chair will be even lighter because it will stand on only two legs”
