by Jorge Pensi, from Knoll

toledo stacking chair

Design Jorge Pensi, 1988
100% recyclable polished aluminum
Made by Knoll

This award winning versatile chair was originally designed for Amat by Jorge Pensi which has since been adopted by Knoll. The chair still bears the stamp of Pensi's name and "AMAT 3" under the seat. It is just as comfortable outside as it is indoors, and the frame will not reflect extreme outdoor temperatures. The seat, back and arms are thermo-treated polished cast aluminum. The legs are anodized, polished tubular aluminum making the chair completely 100% recyclable. Optional seat cushion available in a variety of upholstery options. As the name implies, the chair can be stacked up to 4 high for compact storage.

After completing architecture school in Buenos Aires, Jorge Pensi co-established a design practice with Alberto Lievore in Barcelona. Pensi has worked alone and in design groups in many varying fields, as furniture designer, lighting designer, product image designer and designer of special setting concepts. Pensi also collaborates with his wife, Carme Casares, on graphic design projects. He has lectured on design in Spain, the United States and at the Royal College of Art, London.

With proper preventative maintenance, the Toledo chair without seat cushion is appropriate for outdoor environments. Aluminum will not reflect extreme outdoor temperatures.

Jorge Pensi

Versatile Spanish designer Jorge Pensi (b. 1946) of Buenos Aires has worked on interior, architectural, and industrial design projects, but is best known for his furniture and lighting. He became a Spanish citizen in 1975 and co-established a design practice with Alberto Lievore in Barcelona, as well as forming the Berenguer Group (founded 1977) with other designers. In 1984, he started his own practice to focus on furniture and lighting. His expressive Minimalist style showcases meticulously crafted cast aluminum furniture, and some of his best known works include the Toledo chair for Amat, the Regina lamp for B. Lux, the Artico and Duna collections for Cassina, and the Carma Table System and Pol seating range for Akaba. Internationally, he was awarded the Nuevo Estilo (1994), the Good Industrial Design Award in Holland (1995), and the Product Design Award at the 1997 Industrie Forum.
Hans Knoll founded the Knoll company in New York City in 1938 one year after immigrating from Germany. He hired Florence Schust who had worked for Gropius and Breuer and the two were married in 1946. Knoll would triumph thanks to impressive international contacts, gaining exclusive rights to the works of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe including the Barcelona Chair. Knoll commissioned Eero Saarinen to design the Tulip chair. Artists such as Harry Bertoia, Jens Risom, and Isamu Noguchi also collaborated with Knoll.
