The 646 Leggera Chair has been created by Gio Ponti for the brand Cassina. Inspired by the classic Chiavari chair, Leggera is a sleek and gorgeous example of Italian craftsmanship. Making fine use of natural wood, it has an expressive form and will be exceptionally comfortable whether used in bedrooms, studies or living rooms.
The 646 Leggera Chair stands out thanks to its wooden construction. Ponti has used slender horizontal and vertical lines, while including eye-catching angles such as the slightly offset back of the chair and tapered legs which bulge a little at the centre. The seat of the chair is made from woven rope, a choice which combines attractively with the wooden frame while adding comfort at the same time. Multiple cross-struts underneath the seat also add strength and make the chair easier to handle.
The 646 Leggera Chair has a height of 85cm and a seat height of 46cm, while it measures 45cm wide and 47cm deep. Every part of the chair has been constructed via subtle joinery, ensuring that the piece flows gracefully without any jarring elements. At the same time, its proportions have been calculated to make every moment in the 646 Leggera Chair an absolute delight.
