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.
The latest creation of Lissoni is the Puma chair, for the giant Kartell, one of the symbols of Italian design around the world. Milan Design Agenda will present you, in first hand, this astonishing piece, on exhibition in Milan Design Week 2015. Welcome to the Ultra Light Chair!
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”.
Milan Design Week showcases the latest in furniture and design worldwide. It is considered a leading venue for the display of new products by designers of furniture, lighting and home furnishings. The showi s held every year, usually in April, in the FieraMilano complex in the Milan metropolitan area town of Rho.
