Lella & Massimo Vignelli
In the late 1980's Lella and Massimo Vignelli were commissioned to design a television set for the broadcasting of the news. It would usher in a new approach to news broadcasting: rather than simply “talking heads”, people would now be shot full body.
Intervista is an armchair with a supporting structure, for the shell and seat, in steel upholstered with moulded polyurethane. The seat spring system consists of elastic belts. The upholstery of the Intervista armchair is in Pelle Frau® leather. There are two other variants: Intervista Twist, with an even larger and more comfortable seat, has one-way front castors and swivel rear castors. Meanwhile, Intervista 360° has a swivel base and can rotate about itself.
