Armchair

Aldo Rossi, 1989

Designed in 1989 and launched the same year in the uniFor showroom in Paris for Designers’ Day, the Parigi armchair responds with great functionality to the demands of a studio or office, interpreted by Rossi as “a domestic space for working.”

Design Aldo Rossi, 1989

Parigi is a chair that falls far from the myths of efficiency, bringing domesticity even to the office environment. Aldo Rossi designed a seat that appears rigid like wood, but is actually soft
to the touch. The painted black aluminium structure is accompanied by a bright red self-supporting seat and backrest. The geometry of the armchair is broken by a dynamic curve that forms the armrest and legs, seeming to move the entire structure out of the usual inclination and giving rise to a particularly dynamic object.

Aldo Rossi

Aldo Rossi (Milan, May 3, 1931 - Milan, September 4, 1997) was one of the greatest Italian architects of the 1980’s. His Molteni Group collaboration marked his passage from masterful architect to an industrial designer. He created models and furnishings for the Museum of Maastricht, the Teatro Carlo Felice in Genoa and the reconstruction of the Teatro La Fenice in Venice. Aldo Rossi designed items that were destined to become icons of the 20th century.
