Design by Poul Cadovius, 1959
As a furniture designer, Poul Cadovius was mostly known for his iconic shelving systems, like the ROYAL SYSTEM® from 1948. But with the launch of the dining chair PIA CHAIR in 1959, he could also add the title chair designer to the CV.
He wanted to create a chair in the spirit of the time, inspired by other design chairs of the fifties, but lighter and more "petite", both in physical weight and in design expression. The chair was developed on a "less is more" concept, with focus on the least possible material consumption, still maintaining a high level of details and excellent comfort.
The 8 chairs will only be sold in set of 8
