Design Gabriele Mucchi - 1935
Lounge chair. Chromium-plated steel frame or with natural or black nickel-satin finish, or black painted. Suspension on steel springs. Adjustable seat in two positions. Cushion and headrest upholstered in polyurethane. Leather-covered cushions and armrests.
In 1982, among the re-editions, the Genni lounge chair - designed by Gabriele Mucchi in 1935 - entered the Zanotta catalogue. This item is striking in its formal elegance and surprising continuous modernity.
It is made of bended and chromium-plated steel tube, a material symbol of the language of designers belonging to the movement of rationalist architecture, that at the beginning of last century had experienced the first new project opportunities offered by the nascent industry of modern furniture.
