Niccola Chair, 1992

Andrea Branzi

Steel, polyurethane, leather or Alcantara


Niccola is a chair designed by Andrea Branzi in 1992.

Since the 1980s, Branzi has been advocating a post-industrialist approach which maintains the importance of design for the individual. Although far removed stylistically from his earlier "neo-primitive" style and borrowing references from the Modern Movement, the "Niccola" is fundamentally a Post-Modern design.
