Designed in 1965, the Dezza armchair embodies some of Gio Ponti’s most important design principles from both a formal perspective - like the leg with its characteristic tapered triangular cross-section - and a methodological standpoint, thanks to the revolutionary modular system comprising of a limited number of pieces to assemble.
The Dezza sofa and armchairs, comfortable, light and very versatile, are reissued in a refined new edition that exalts their formal beauty and unique style.
The supporting structure is made from seasoned beech. The number 12 armchair has slender armrests that make it possible to combine two or more elements. The number 48 armchair has a goose down headrest incorporated in the backrest. The upholstery is entirely in Pelle Frau® leather or in Pelle Frau® leather for the shell and “Cavallino” leather for the seat and backrest cushion. Lots of different finishes available for the feet: as well as white or black lacquered wood, you can also opt for Ponti blue or Ponti green, or for Canaletto walnut.
