The Maralunga Armchair from Cassina was designed by Italian designer Vico Magistretti whose designs are included in the permanent exhibitions of the world's most renowned museums. Although it was designed in the 1970s, the Maralunga still emanates contemporary style without compromising comfort. The story goes that Cesare Cassina punched his fist into the original prototype by Magistretti complaining that it did not fit the brief for true comfort. It was only after the back had been broken that the Milanese architect hit on a better solution to replace traditional upholstery. Maralunga's unique design feature is the movable headrest which quickly converts from the low to the high positions, depending on sitting preference.
