Design Tokujin Yoshioka, 2008
Internal steel frame, flame-retardant foam, upholstery
Made in Italy by Moroso

Panna Chair springs to life when someone sits on it, adapting its shape to that of the person. It is soft and embracing. Its lines are graceful and sinuous. It is the essence of research, elegant design and experimentation.

Tokujin Yoshioka, is a great "couturier" with a meticulous eye for detail, he is a designer whose delicate, poetic, elegant designs help us to dream. He likes to astonish us by producing surprising effects from simple, almost banal objects which he interprets and uses in an extraordinary way by means of his ability to see beyond and to reinterpret the world through the characteristic poetry and harmony of Japanese culture.

Panna Chair is made of polyurethane foam over a metal frame. In keeping with his study of materials, Tokujin chose fabric as the chair's value-driven component. A fabric designed to be highly practical and functional is revisited and reinterpreted for its inherent poetry. Upholstery designed like a dress to be slipped on and pulled down over the body. The name, material, stitching, gathering, softness, thickness and color are messages which convey the soul and function of this chair and the feeling of fulfillment it gives you.
