During Salone, Alessi will be presenting in Via Manzoni, the heart of Milan, a new project by English architect David Chipperfield.

The Piana chair is a new type of product for the Crusinallo-based company — it’s a folding chair produced under license with Parma-based company Lamm. Piana is made from polypropylene reinforced with fibreglass with A.U.V. additives and matte, anti-slip surfaces. Produced in six different colors, the seat has a synchronized opening and closing system that rotates about a single point.
