Cassina 699 Superleggera Chair
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”. Like the name suggested this chair is super light weight - with only 1,7kg. Ponti found the right balance between stability and lightness and created a piece which is timeless and classic and has not lost its charm over the years.
The Cassina 699 Superleggera chair is made of ash and available in ash natural, white or black lacquered ash. The offered version without fabric nor leather cover is made with a seat in India cane. That model is the most complex version of the Supperleggera chair because Cassina is using an old braiding technique that only a few people from the area Genoa are able to do.
