The Cassina ICO Chair, developed over more than two years with the French designer Ora Ito, is a combination of wood craftsmanship and technological innovation. Ico clearly references Cassina's heritage and in particular the 814 chair designed by Ico Parisi in 1950; the chair's name pays tribute to this historical model.
The base, made entirely of solid wood, is representative of the brand's ability to industrialise sinuous yet complex forms through the perfect combination of craftsmanship and technology. This element is characterised by refined joinery, traditional carpentry and the use of sophisticated, latest generation, numerical control milling machines with 5 axes.
Ico's curved wooden frame is accompanied by careful upholstery work: soft inserts upholstered in fabric or leather are enriched with stitching details from the end of the armrest to the backrest, a functional and also aesthetic choice.
