Marco Zanuso Lady Chair Description

Designed in 1951, Marco Zanuso Lady Chair became an icon of modern design and a symbol of technological, material and stylistic innovation. Cassina 720 Lady completely overturned the traditional system of upholstered furniture production because it was the first to be designed and manufactured in separate parts. Marco Zanuso's interest in industrialization transformed his armchair, also known as "Lady Chair", into a concrete example of an object destined for serial production

Marco Zanuso Lady chair for Cassina: the innovative and technological industrial design.

Presented at the 9th edition of the Milan Triennale in 1951 (the same year in which it was produced) Cassina Lady Chair won the gold medal as an iconic armchair of Italian design, representing a perfect synthesis of opportunities, creative experimentation and production innovations.

Cassina Lady Chair Features

Cassina 720 Lady is an icon of modern design and made in Italy. It was an innovative product of the 50s both from a technological and material point of view. Technological because it is one of the first upholstered products to be made in separate pieces to be assembled, material because it is the first armchair to be padded with polyurethane foam and foam rubber

These two new materials symbolize the relentless research and industrialization of those years. In fact, the first edition of this iconic piece was designed by Marco Zanuso for Arflex, who was also experimenting with foam rubber for domestic use at the time.

Later, the re-edition of Lady by Marco Zanuso for Cassina, was able to enhance the aesthetics of this unique armchair, with a completely contemporary and elegant taste. 

The seat, backrest and armrests of Cassina Lady Chair have different densities depending on the support required by the pressure of the body. In addition, to achieve an even higher level of comfort, the design introduces a spring system with reinforced elastic straps. The timeless charm of Marco Zanuso lady chair and its iconic and inimitable curves are integrated in a play of contrasts with the slim metal legs, which support the entire structure and enhance the lightness of the shapes.

Cassina 720 Lady Materials

The Lady armchair designed by Marco Zanuso can have different types of non-removable covers, both in leather and fabric. You can choose among a wide variety of textures and shades, all different from each other. Cassina 720 Lady offers a precious selection of fabrics by Raf Simons, with deep colours such as red, blue or green, and dark or neutral colours such as dove grey, ash grey or anthracite. 

But the real distinguishing feature of Cassina Lady Chair is its iconic edition with black and white checkered upholstery and matt basalt painted feet. An authentic touch of class for an armchair that has marked the history of Italian design and industrial product innovation.  The seat and backrest have a steel frame. The bases are also in steel and can have three different finishes and coverings: matt basalt, chrome brass and black chrome.

Cassina Lady Chair Compositions

Marco Zanuso Lady Chair was initially conceived as a seat for car interiors, but the Italian designer decided to produce this armchair also for domestic environments, always using the  process for mass-produced pieces. This was the birth of Cassina 720 Lady, which is currently available in these dimensions: width 77 cm, depth 84 cm and height 78 cm. The armchair has a large seat and comfortable backrest and armrests.
