Plia — Chrome, Pink Smoke
Anonima Castelli by Giancarlo Piretti

This piece is part of the AAVVGG Archive and not currently part of the collection.

The symbol of a new era focused on plastic: this is how the 1967 Plia chair was received when it was published at the Milan Furniture Fair. On the occasion of the fair, the chair proved so popular that many visitors left the stand taking the floor models (without permission...) The unorthodox compliment resulted in the chairs being tied down with a chain.

With the Plia seat the designer Giancarlo Piretti revolutionized the concept of a folding chair and his study on the "3-disk pivot" is considered a stroke of genius. The combination of a steel and polypropylene frame has paved the way for the Plia chair that has become a cult object.
