The “Luisona” chair is a custom-made designed in the manner of the Luisa chair with a simple design with an elegant and meticulous execution as demonstrated by its joint connections, structure, lines, and materials.
This custom-made “Luisona” chair differs from the “Luisa” chair in width, inclination, and height; but both designs share some unique features such as the joints of the armrests, the triangular endings the back support and legs, the elegant proportions, and the craftsmanship. This chair is a wonderful example of why Franco Albini is defined by many as the inventor of Italian modernism.
