the ‘ico’ chair by ora ïto for cassina which was presented at milan design week 2016, contains a curved wooden frame with sharp graphic cutouts inserted into the armrests. the enveloping structure is instantly recognisable and makes reference to ico parisi’s ‘814’ chair (a cassina classic designed in 1950). its concise contour animates the traditional wooden seat, introducing a fresh take on a classic framework. the chair’s naturally veined wood is accompanied by careful upholstery work: soft inserts upholstered in fabric or leather are enriched with stitching details from the end of the armrest to the backrest, a functional and also aesthetic choice. it is available in 4 open pore matt finishes, (natural ash-wood or ash-wood stained black, walnut or red) making the piece extremely versatile for all kinds of architectural settings. thanks to the chair’s low armrests, ‘ico’ fits perfectly around the dining table.
