Designed by Lucidipevere, the Chignon armchair has recently been granted
the iF Design Award 2018, an important award in the design industry,
that has been given out yearly for over 60 years.
The design of the Chignon armchair, soft and retro-style, is characterized by a steam-bent beech wood frame designed to wrap the seat sinuously, and a soft back that makes it extremely comfortable. With a slim and filiform design, but at the same time curvy and curvilinear,
the Chignon armchair is intentionally feminine.
Once again, the elegance and versatility of products from Gebrüder Thonet Vienna GmbH have been recognized and rewarded, confirming once again that the brand, which has been the protagonist of the historical transition from craftsmanship to industry, can unite tradition and innovation in ongoing design research, backed by a long-standing manufacturing heritage.
