Design Stefano Giovannoni, 2009
Aluminum, polyester-cotton or polymer
Made in Italy by Magis
The lithe, elegant motion of a toreador and his cape—the signature movement upon which the traditional Spanish paso doble dance is based—inspired Stefano Giovannoni’s seductive Paso Doble seating family. The Milan-based designer developed the group around the concept of material suspended between rigid structures, much like the sling suspension found on the Eames Aluminum Group chairs.
Giovannoni’s design employs sturdy, roll-formed aluminum rails and flexible polymer mesh to create the lightweight and stackable Paso Doble Chair, available in many beautiful materials options for the seat and backrest and several frame colors, and with or without arms. As part of the Paso Doble group, this chair joins lounge chairs, as well as an ottoman and a stool, for a comprehensive indoor-outdoor line created by a designer known for his keen eye for structure, form, simplicity, and, of course, playfulness.41" h | 29" w | 33" d | seat: 15" h
