Piero Lissoni Presents Piuma


For art connaisseurs, Piero Lissoni must be a familiar name, an international reference. He is an architect, art director and designer, born in 1956. Lissoni approaches his work with a mastery of proportion and an acute sensitivity for the subtlety that distinguishes the common from the insightful, never designing for a specific function or purpose, but designing for human beings.

In December 2008, for Luminaire’s exhibition and auction PaperLove, Lissoni partnered with his son Francesco, to create a three-dimensional geometric grid that housed paper light boxes placed randomly, Sol Light. It was auctioned to raise money for cancer research.

Puma is manufactured in an innovative charged polyamide fibre, which has allowed the material to be used in a minimum thickness, just a few millimeters, for an ultra lightweight chair. It weighs only 2 kg and is extremely flexible and resistant, suitable for outdoor use and also stackable.

In Kartell’s website, Pierro Lissoni describes, proudly, his creation:

Nomina sunt consequentia rerum: names reveal the essence of things. Even the name alone identifies the quality of the project. Piuma is a molded seat containing a blend of materials which lead it to weigh around just 2 kilos and with maximum thickness of 2 millimeters, so it is as light as a feather”.
