The sculptural Rialto chair is a true masterpiece in carpentry. The chair that was originally designed for the Milan Triennale in 1957 combines streamlined forms with refined details.
Hiort af Ornäs approached furniture design like a sculptor. His furniture looks beautiful from any angle, often revealing intriguing details in the most surprising places. No need to hide anything against a wall – Rialto is like a sculpture that can be placed in any part of a room.
The streamlined design and sophisticated details engage in a fascinating dialogue. The braided leather straps at the back and curved legs shaped from a single piece of wood give Rialto its unique appearance.
Re-issued in autumn 2020, Rialto is a contemporary classic that changes its appearance depending on the chosen wood type, upholstery, backrest and armrest finishes.
The frame is available in four options: mahogany, walnut, oak and birch.
