Vintage Italian Leather Scissor Chair Timeless by Antonio Citterio for Flexform, 1980s
Delivering from: Warsaw, Poland
This heavy and solid but at the same time elegant Timeless chair was designed by Antonio Citterio for the Italian Flexform manufacture during the 1980s. This chair has a chromed steel X-shaped frame over which black natural leather has been stretched. This impeccably crafted chair is a postmodern interpretation of a Mid-Century classic modern style.

In 1972, he obtained a degree in architecture from the Politecnico di Milano, and then began working as a designer and consultant for industrial design.

In 2000, together with Patricia Viel, he founded Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel – an interdisciplinary practice of architecture and interior design. The company operates internationally, developing complex projects on all scales in cooperation with a network of specialized consultants.
