Cirene Chair

Vico Magistretti 1999

Designer Vico Magistretti relied on the relationship between line and material as the foundation for this sophisticated design. The gentle curves of the molded plywood shell are accentuated by the X-shaped chrome-plated steel base, which is available with or without arms. Cirene stacks 10-high for compact storage, perfect for cafeterias and breakout areas.
