Toshiyuki Kita Leather Wink Lounge Chair for Cassina, 1980

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Designed by Toshiyuki Kita in 1980 and produced by Cassina in Italy, the Wink is an extremely comfortable lounge chair with adjustable positions. This early edition is in soft supple neutral gray leather. Side knobs easily adjust the back up and down, the headrest is divided in two parts, each with an independent reclining position. By tilting the base forward the armchair becomes a chaise longue.
This versatile design works as both an armchair and a chaise longue in that it is part ergonomic car seat, with its adjustable handle at the side, and part Mickey Mouse fun loving design. Wink can be moved into many positions.

Permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, NYC.
