Sanluca Limited Edition

Sanluca Limited Edition

The Sanluca armchair, presented in 1960 at the XII Milan Triennale, is one of the great icons of Italian design. Designed by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, when it was first unveiled it created quite a stir for its original aerodynamic, almost futuristic forms.

In reality, it is an armchair that marries form and function to perfection, the first example of ergonomics applied to design. A hundred years after the birth of Achille and fifty since the passing of Pier Giacomo, Poltrona Frau presents a numbered limited edition version of the Sanluca armchair, which is also a tribute to another great name from the design pantheon, Max Huber. In fact, the fabric that covers the Sanluca Limited Edition is inspired by the work of the Swiss graphic designer and artist who had a decades-long friendship with the Castiglioni. An armchair that is the embodiment of the golden age of Italian design.
Inspired by the idea of removing traditional padding to leave only the “strictly necessary” curves for optimum support, the Sanluca armchair perfectly envelopes the body. The rigid wooden structure is formed of separate components that are subsequently assembled. The upholstery is a special fabric made on a Jacquard loom according to an original 1968 design by Max Huber entitled “Geophysical Waves”. It is available in two colours: a white background with black stripes and a black background with white stripes The feet are in wenge-coloured solid ash wood.
