As the architect for Dolce and Gabbana Stores, the Museum of Modern Literature in Germany and countless other projects, David Chipperfield has won multiple architecture prizes. His most recent honor was the 2011 RIBA Royal Gold Medal for Architecture, given in recognition of a lifetime of work and approved personally by Her Majesty the Queen. He describes his Piana Chair (2011) as possessing a “visual expression that is indicative in its simplicity of the function and role of the item itself.” (Translation: It’s an awesome folding chair that looks like an awesome folding chair.) With no visible hardware, the three parts of the chair rotate around a single axis, and the finely engineered mechanism is concealed within the chair. The Piana folds completely flat for stacking horizontally. Suitable for outdoor use. Optional wall hook available (sold separately). Made in Italy.
