La Leggera chair

From the experience and craftsmanship of our carpentry, the Cassina chair reaffirms itself in wood, able to be easily placed in different environments and to satisfy a wide range of aesthetic and economic needs.

Leggera is a historical model came back to life. A new challenge for Cassina, which highlights the craft skills of the company, a perfect representation of the MedaMade brand. A simple, polished, clear, graceful chair, strong in its iconic design past. n 1952, Leggera chair marked the beginning of an iter that includes in a unicum the entire design ideas and executive path of collaboration between Gio Ponti, Cesare Cassina and his craftsmen, which landed in 1957 at the Superleggera model.

Compared to the Superleggera, characterized by slender legs with triangular section, Leggera has almost circular section legs and, thanks to its extreme strength and simplicity, has had a very high commercial distribution over the years.
The silhouette is made of solid ash wood, in a range of variants designed to emphasize its elegance and to offer combinability with other catalog models. The seat is covered with fabric or leather, both covers are removable or in natural paper rope.
The many possible combinations between the shades of the ash structure and the various shades of the seat covers, make this model extremely contemporary, full of contrasting colors and materials, suitable for insertion into domestic and professionals contexts.
