Designed by Gio Ponti for Cassina, the Superleggera, meaning 'super lightweight' in Italian, embodies structured comfort and style.

Incredibly lightweight and elegant, this innovative chair was inspired by the traditional vernacular chairs produced in the Ligurian town of Chiavari. A first of its kind, the 699's minimal design represented a transition into modern Italian design and the important, ever-changing relationship between designer and manufactuer. Boasting a soft silhouette yet robust frame, its durability was put to the test when thrown from a four-storey building and landing intact. The struts moulding the chair frame slot together due to the designers own ingenious system, whilst the wicker cane seat delicately sculpts to the user's preferred comfort. Perfect utilised as a hallway chair or dining chair, the Superleggera is a functional classic sure to impress.
