Designed in 1965, the ‘Dezza’ armchair sums up some of the most important design canons of Ponti: in formal terms as it features the legs with its characteristic tapered triangular section and in methodological terms for its revolutionary “system modularity”, by menas of a limited number of pieces.
It is interesting to know that by the time he designed Dezza and its variants at age 74, Ponti was living on the top floor of a building located in Via Dezza, in Milan. Support structure in seasoned beech with polyurethanefoam padding. Seat sprung with elasticcloth. Cushions for seat and backrest in polyurethanefoam and Dacron. The ends of the assemblyelements on the sides are in chrome-plated brass.
