* Marco Zanuso was born in 1916 in Italy, he developed a passion for architecture very early on, which he studied at the Polytechnic in Milan.
In 1945, the young graduate opened his own practice. Passionate about design and the desire to share his knowledge, he co-directs the Domus magazine with Ernesto N. Rogers.
In 1957, Zanuso began a collaboration with the famous German designer Richard Sapper. Together, they manufacture a whole range of particularly functional televisions and radios. These products will greatly influence the use of plastic in various consumer products. They allowed a significant reduction in prices! Zanuso's research and work are at the origin of great advances: he was one of the first designers in his country to take an interest in the integration of new technologies in the process of industrialization of the product. His talent has been rewarded many times: he received multiple gold medals and the Grand Prix of the Milan Triennial but also five Compasso d'Oro between 1956 and 1985!
It was at the very beginning of the 1950s that Marco Zanuso designed the Lady armchair.
Presented for the first time in 1951 during the IXth Triennale in Milan, it was an immediate success! Its comfort was truly incredible for the time. It is the result of an innovative technique that marks the beginning of modern upholstery. To achieve this exceptional result, the Italian designer was inspired by the automotive sector by studying the different production techniques. He then understood the importance of the relationships that exist between each piece but also retained certain materials. He then adapted these achievements to the creation of seats by proposing a separate production of the parts and using foam rubber and Nastrocord. Thanks to this, the Lady armchair offers different degrees of padding according to the needs of the body: a revolution in the world of design! (Source design market)
