Franco Albini took almost 15 years to develop the final design for the Luisa Armchair. His aim was to simplify its components until a pure and refined composition was achieved. In 1955 this timeless classic won the prestigious 'La Rinascente-Compasso d'Oro' price and is still in production today by Cassina.
The polyurethane padded backrest and seat are upholstered in Scozia leather and has a steel frame for maximum strength. The joints of the wooden frame increase in thickness offering support where needed - their flush fitting and precise alignment illustrates Albini's focus on construction. The frame is available in american walnut, natural or black stained ash with the seat in a selection of Scozia leather colours.
The Luisa Armchair is part of the the "Cassina Maestri" collection. These are certified original designs, each of which is marked with the signature of the designer and the Cassina Maestri logo, together with the production number and identity card.
