Designer: Piero Lissoni
Kartell Piuma Armchair designed by Piero Lissoni is one of the most revolutionary and enterprising products in Kartell’s repertoire of technology and materials.
It has taken 2 years of research & development to finally settle on the unusual blend needed to create the Piuma armchair design. This is a thermoplastic polymer compounded with numerous fibres including carbon in order to give the structure greater rigidity and a low weight.
This compound comes from two diverse sectors of the industry, ie. automotive and aeronautics, which is unprecedented in the furniture industry. By applying new injection moulding techniques of a wide range of materials, which was designed exclusively by Kartell, has enabled the production of this advanced chair.
The main advantages of this beautifully sculptured Piuma chair are;
- because of it's slender design measuring just 2mm thick around the seat & arms, is extremely lightweight (barely 2.2 kg)
- ergonomically shaped for maximum comfort.
- due to its non corrosive material composition is equally suitable for use in inside & outside environments.
The product name Piuma means feather, ie. is as light as a feather & can be lifted with just 2 fingers. It is the first time that a material containing carbon fibre has been injection moulded for aesthetic reasons.
Available colours are white (03), grey (GR), sage green (VE), mustard (SE), rusty orange (RU) and black (09).
