Description Designed by Ignazio Gardella in 1957, the Digamma lounge chair is a comfortable chair with roots in the late Italian modernist tradition.
Its rational construction features two geometric sections - the rectangular upholstered back and seat - bound by a firm upholstered frame. The black metallic legs are finished off with Gardella's iconic brass 'Duck' feet. The armchair has a three-position reclining backrest offering additional comfort and adjustability.

This chair is a custom version realized by Santa & Cole for Kabinet Hubert, upholstered and sewn by hand in a navy blue Vidar fabric designed by Raf Simons for Kvadrat. Woven from bouclé yarns with a regular loop size, Vidar has a deep and close-knit texture giving the fabric a multifaceted and inviting richness. A sample of the fabric is available on request, please enquire for details.

Ignazio Gardella was a member of the so-called third generation of the Modern Movement. He is considered one of the greatest exponents of Italian Rationalism, although he followed its principles in a much more personal way, searching to overcome its limitations. In 1957, he created the Digamma armchair which was produced by Gavina. In 2005 the Barcelona based Santa & Cole has been assigned by Gavina to produce the official reedition. In this armchair Gardella showed his capacity to join harmoniously elements that belonged to opposite styles at first sight, a common characteristic of most of his works.

The mentioned price is for the pair, the chair is also available individually.
