Landi Chair by Hans Coray
Developed for the 1939 Swiss National Exhibition, the Landi Chair occupies an important place in the history of twentieth-century design: this classic by Hans Coray established the new typology of a three dimensionally moulded seat shell on a separate base. The clear structure of the all aluminium chair consists of two parts. First, a pair of U-shaped profiles connected by welded crossbeams form a self-supporting frame and simultaneously serve as the legs and low armrests. This base supports a seat shell, which makes ideal use of the material’s possibilities: the punched holes not only ensure the modest weight and flexibility of the comfortable shell, but also give the graceful Landi its trademark appearance.
Seat shell: pressed aluminium with 91 punched holes, matte anodised surface.
Base: armrests and legs from bent aluminium profiles with welded aluminium cross braces.
Glides in light grey injection moulded TPE.
