Piana is a nesting folding chair made in 100% recyclable polypropylene that is suited to any area of the house both indoors and outdoors. The design takes full advantage of a synchronised seat opening and closing system with single point of rotation, without any visible fastenings. The extreme simplicity distinguishing the design is accompanied by its great manageability. The chair’s backrest measures 7 cm when folded, making it easy to handle. The chair’s thickness is only 3 cm, sharpening its profile, and underlining the lightness of this model conceived for the workplace and for use in the contract sector.
