audrey armchair

Design Piero Lissoni, 2011
Batch dyed polypropylene, aluminum
Made in Italy by Kartell

Audrey is not just a simple chair. It belongs to an eclectic, multifunctional "contaminating" family that can go everywhere: indoor and outdoor, office, home and contract. All sharing the same DNA but with slight differences to adapt to various uses. Audrey is a versatile contemporary chair with clean and simple lines thanks to the lightness and resistance of its die-cast aluminium frame. This is the first time a single piece, with or without armrests, has been thus cast.

After receiving his degree in architecture form the Milan Polytecnic, Piero Lissoni worked as a furniture designer before founding his own studio in 1986, specializing in architecture, interior and graphic design. He has collaborated with furniture companies, worked on a number of architecture projects in Japan and worked on design projects that have included a shopping center, an art gallery, a Cordon Bleu cooking school, logos and trademarks. He has received numerous awards including the Chicago Athenaeum 2002 Good Design ®Award for the Divina collection.

Audrey features a seat and back of plastic in various colors and the aluminium structure available in either shiny aluminum or painted white or black.

Piero Lissoni

Piero Lissoni (b. 1956) of Seregno, Italy originally studied architecture in Milan, but first worked as a designer for Molteni and Lema, and later as art director and designer for a well-known food manufacturer. In 1986 he founded his own studio with Nico Canesi that still employs many architects, designers and product designers. The company’s second office, called "Graph.x" opened in 1996. Lissoni is well known for designing the internal architecture of hotels, such as the Monaco & Grand Canal in Venice , and the Bentley design hotel in Istanbul. As a graphic designer, Lissoni designed the corporate identity of the fashion designer Elie Taharie. As a product designer, his leg chair "S44" is very well known.
Kartell's image and its 59 years of history are described through the company's products. The development, the corporate strategies, the attention the company has paid to technology, the project and the design can be appreciated by observing the products Kartell has produced. Kartell's products express the language and the atmosphere of the period in which they were created, but at the same time, they are "contemporary articles," they incorporate many other values and messages and this is why they have become an integral part of our domestic design world.
