Gae Aulenti for Zanotta, dining or folding chairs, stainless steel, aluminum, saddle leather, Italy, 1964

Gae Aulenti transformed the idea of a classic directors chair in to an innovative and multifunctional chair with this model called 'April'. The foldable chair is made of stainless steel with a thick saddle leather seat and backrest. The frame is clean, open and rational yet elegant.

Gae Aulenti (1927-2012) was an Italian architect. She is well-known for several large-scale museum projects, including the Musée d'Orsay in Paris and Palazzo Grassi in Venice. Aulenti was at the forefront of Italian post-war design. Her design was meant to make connections with both history and future of Italy. The postmodern movement that Aulenti belonged to refused to design in the objective language of the modernists. This Avant Garde Postmodern design movement was the beginning of new type of Italian art, architecture and design.
