The 301 Laleggera Chair was designed by renowned designer Riccardo Blumer for Italian furniture brand Alias.
One of the most celebrated contemporary Italian designers, Riccardo Blumer was born in Beramo in 1959. He graduated from the prestigious Milan Polytechnic before embarking on a career as a furniture designer. In 1996, Blumer designed the now-iconic Laleggera Chair for Alias, which went on to win the ADI Compasso d'Oro award in 1998. The chair can be admired at a permanent exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York or the Center George Pompidou in Paris.
The 301 Laleggera Chair showcases a new take on the traditional wooden chair. At first glance, the chair may be mistaken for a classic wooden chair, but upon closer inspection, the uniquely-angled backrest and refined curves of the seat lend an unmistakably modern finish. The chair stands 79cm high, 53cm long, 44cm wide and has a seat height of 46cm. When not in use, the chair stacks away neatly to save space. Thanks to the neutral colour scheme and solid wood construction, the chair has excellent longevity and is suitable for use in office spaces as well as the home.
