Design by Piero Lissoni.
Made in Italy by Kartell.
Form is ideal for both home and business use, such as in waiting rooms or hotel reception areas. The basic element of the Form series is a seat which is both spacious and of ergonomic design, formed by a sheet of semi-structural polyurethane and lying on a light, chromed steel structure. It has a wide and comfortable seat, whose outline shows the result of meticulous research into the thickness of the material. This research has enabled a reduction in thickness to approximately 1 inch, without compromising solidity, resistance and flexibility. The series can be overlapped by placing the armchairs side by side and hooking them together freely to form long benches. Select from a variety of color options.

After receiving his degree in architecture form the Milan Polytecnic, Piero Lissoni worked as a furniture designer before founding his own studio in 1986, specializing in architecture, interior and graphic design. He has collaborated with Boffi Cucine, Living Divani, Mateograssi and Kartell, and worked on a number of architecture projects in Japan, with design projects that have included a shopping center, an art gallery, a Cordon Bleu cooking school, logos and trademarks. His awards include the 1991 Esprit kitchen design and the Compasso d'Oro design prize. He has also received the Chicago Athenaeum 2002 Good Design® Award for this collection.
Piero Lissoni's design principle is never to design for a specific function or purpose - but to design for human beings.View other products by Piero Lissoni
