Manzu Lounge Chair

manzu lounge chair

Design Pio Manzu, 1967
Molded polyurethane, die-cast aluminum, upholstery
Made in Italy by Alias

Alias revisits a key archive project by Pio Manzù, the brilliant protagonist of Italian automobile design during the sixties. The idea materialized at the GAMeC of Bergamo where the archives of Pio Manzù's work are stored. The attention was drawn to a prototype chair clearly taking its inspiration from the automobile industry. The decision was also made to integrate a footrest on a four-star base, designed to be wholly coherent with the design and proportions of the chair.

This journey of culture and design has given Alias the opportunity to discover a deep-rooted affinity with the historical figure of Pio Manzù. One of the first designers to have conceived the man-machine relationship beyond mere function, considering aspects of safety and well-being, Manzù's uncompromising approach to design and his familiarity with technology made him a genuine pioneer in the sphere of ergonomics.

The Manzu lounge chair features a supporting structure in dense polyurethane co-formed with polyurethane foam. The 5-star swivel base is cast aluminum, polished or enameled in various colors. Both lounge chair and optional ottoman are presented in elegant leather upholstery in your choice of several shades. The Manzu lounge chair can also be specified with a hard external shell in enameled polyurethane (please call to order).
