Lady 1951

The beautiful Lady 1951 chair – now available from Poliform in Australia.

Designed by: MARCO ZANUSO   


I am: Chair


About me:

Designed for the IX Triennale in Milan in 1951, Lady perfectly exemplifies the philosophy of Arflex and its revolutionary exploration of new technology and materials.





Lady was developed to realise the potential of new rubbers, foams and elastics within the realms of furniture manufacture.




This adoption of new technology made it one of the first contemporary chairs to be designed for mass production resulting in its designer being awarded the Gold Medal at the IX Triennale and its enduring success as an iconic design.
