Enzo Mari Sedia 1 Chair

01-04. "Design is always education."


While brutally cold yesterday, New York still offers plenty of interesting things to take your mind off the numbness of your fingers, and the chill in your bones. Popping into Matter for a some respite in the afternoon I was reminded once again of my admiration for Enzo Mari's Sedia 1 Chair. Sold as a kit containing the pinewood boards, nails and instructions needed to assemble the chair, it is produced by Artek and was originally part of Mari's Autoprogettazione project from 1974.

Made one myself from the video on youtube and a few photos, bit tricky figuring out the measurments but the (autoprogrezzione) book is still available and worth the purchase, very comfortable chair and cost about 15 euros for the pine/nails rather than ARTEK's 250 or so. use it as a desk chair.

yes, only 15-20 euro. I want to customize the seat... it is very easy.

250 in artek are too expensive
