Architect Lissoni designs Eve chair for Cassina

Piero Lissoni’s Eve leather chair will be launched at the Milan furniture fair by Italian furniture-maker Cassina

The Eve chair, designed by architect and designer Piero Lissoni, comes with either a wood or aluminium frame. Its leather seat and backrest have no visible stitching. It was designed for Italian furniture-maker Cassina, who said, ‘the sobriety of its form makes this chair versatile and possible to use in any context.’

The chair will be launched as part of the 2009 Cassina Collection at the Milan furniture fair, the Salone Internazionale del Mobile (22-27 April).

  • Look at those clean lines! Look out Mies van der Rohe.

  • Am I the only one who thinks only an architect could design a chair as nice as this one? So often designers just go over the top, like that cloud chair from the other day. Maybe designers should take a swing at doing buildings and architects should take over the chair market. Then we'll see what designers are really made of!

  • How did he make it with no stitching? I wish there was more detail in this article. Nice chair though.
