Seconda Chair by Mario Botta for Alias

$1,295Asking Price

About

Seconda is more than a chair; it is architecture that you sit upon. Designed in 1982, this iconic chair shows the influence of all of Botta's mentors including Le Corbusier, Louis Kahn and Carlo Scarpa. The architectural lines of this chair design are reminiscent of Botta's design for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art building, his first building in the U.S. Often cited as the chair design that epitomizes the "matte black" aesthetic of the 1980s and a rationalist response to the Memphis design movement. An example of this chair is now on view at the Museum of Modern Art.
