torso. armchair.

Paolo Deganello's Torso Chair is one of those things where you really don't care if it's too comfortable or not. It looks good, and that's all that matters. It's got everything I like in a piece of furniture: asymmetrical, colorful, doesn't actually look like furniture at first glance. Not to mention "elastic webbing," which I'm all about. And if that's not enough, you can get a matching Torso Sofa too.

The sofa has better proportions, IMO it looks better in person. Nice to see you are back.

Might work well in a theatre or concert hall foyer for those quicker, experimental sits between acts.

Rather interesting...The design object of the day on my calendar for April 6th was Paolo Deganello's Model No. 654 Torso chair for Cassina, 1982.

I actually sat in one of these at my office many years ago. They are surprisingly comfy - for sitting and reading a magazine or watching tv.
I've been seriously looking for a used one. Does anyone have any leads? Obviously the new ones are more than a king's ransom!

thanks in advance
