Designed in 1951 by Marco Zanuso for Arflex, the Lady armchair won the gold medal at the IX Milan Triennale in the same year. The armchair stands as a modern icon, the fruit of innovation that turned the traditional manufacturing technique for making armchairs and sofas on its head, with each part manufactured separately and then assembled; seat, backrests and sides with diff erent padding densities depending on the support required by the pressure exerted by the body. Today, the look of the Lady armchair has been made even more contemporary by a new selection of fabrics designed by Raf Simons and introduced to Cassina’s Everest collection.
