Designed by Hans Coray for Vitra.
Technical innovation, optimal use of materials, minimalist forms and understated elegance have made the Landi Chair a classic that looks as fresh and vital today as ever.
Developed for the 1939 Swiss National Exhibition, the Landi Chair occupies an important place in the history of twentieth-century design.
The clear structure of the all-aluminium chair consists of two parts. First, a pair of U-shaped profiles connected by welded crossbeams form a self-supporting frame and simultaneously serve as the legs and low armrests. This base supports a seat shell, which makes ideal use of the material’s possibilities: the 91 punched holes not only ensure the modest weight and flexibility of the comfortable shell but also give the graceful Landi its trademark appearance.
Robust and suitable for outdoor use / cafe settings
Lightweight and stackable up to six chairs high.
The anodised aluminium surface of the chair is durable and weather-resistant but may develop signs of wear and tear if the chairs are stacked.
