Season Chair by Piero Lissoni for Viccarbe

June 7th, 2015 by retail design blog

“The best design is that which turns out to be simple and clear after a complex design process,” Italian architect and designer Piero Lissoni defines his creative philosophy which has helped make him one of the world’s best respected contemporary furniture designers. A new dining room chair has been added to Lissoni’s SEASON collection for Viccarbe originally launched in 2011 and which also includes a stool and sofa. SEASON CHAIR is a decep- tively simple and elegant upholstered chair consisting of two rounded volumes, a cube and a vertical rectangular slab that express the act of sitting through a simple almost sculptural approach. “… I love to create everything from a purist aesthetic,” affirms Lissoni.


Composed of two perfectly smooth and rounded distinct forms the vertical rectangular back support appears to rest against one of the cube’s faces, the upholstery is ingeniously wrapped and tucked around both elements. SEASON CHAIR is an outs- tanding example of contemporary craft that defines classical modernity.
“It plays with contrast, providing a sober and at the same time comfortable piece of furniture, completely lacking severity,” Lissoni adds. “I always do my best to provide a human, live touch to my work.”


The internal structure is constructed from solid perforated timber and non-deformable polyurethane foam with hidden wheels to allow for easy mobility. The choice of upholstery includes fabrics and leather in a variety of colours that can be matched with other elements of the collection. The base of the SEASON CHAIR features a washable black high-tech fabric to protect it. Hidden within its base the integrated wheels afford mobility and versatility in use within any given space whether it be a key element of furniture for the home or an accessory for meeting rooms, receptions, lounges or restaurants.

    I’ve never seen a design like this before but I love it. The chairs appear as normal dining chairs at first but then when you look more closely they are almost like bar stools. Very original!
