Is there such a thing as an instant classic? We think it may be Mario Bellini’s 1998 chair design for Heller®, which earned him his eighth Compasso d’Oro award. Working with injection-molded, fiberglass-reinforced plastic, the celebrated Italian architect and designer created a sturdy, stackable and lightweight chair that’s as beautiful as it is versatile. Exceptionally comfortable with a slightly flexible back, it’s tough enough to withstand use in a busy restaurant while elegant enough to flatter a sophisticated studio or home. Made in USA.

One piece injection molding of modified, fiberglass reinforced polypropylene.

Instructions for caring for Molded Polycarbonate
Use a soft damp cloth with soap or a liquid cleaner, preferably diluted with water. Do not use acetone, trichloroethylene, ammonia or other corrosive plastic cleaners. Avoid ethyl alcohol, which makes the surface dull, abrasive solvents, cleaning powders, steel wools or rough sponge cloths. .
Mario Bellini is an architect, industrial designer, teacher, spokesman, curator and editor. He has played each of these roles with the same commitment to promoting design as his predecessors, Marco Zanuso and Vico Magistretti. He became one of the leading exponents of Italian design in the 1970's.
Mario Bellini studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano and shortly thereafter ascended to the position of design director at La Rinascente, an influential chain of Italian department stores.
