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.
We have exclusive rights to the manufacture of furniture designed by Carl-Gustaf Hiort af Ornäs. Many of the pieces received their form decades ago. The legacy also continues in Ornäs furniture designed today.
Ornäs furniture is handcrafted at its own workshop in Hollola, Finland, using the finest materials. Each piece is created with respect to the present and future.
