Product Information

As a furniture designer, Poul Cadovius was mostly known for his iconic shelving systems, like the ROYAL SYSTEM® from 1948. But with the launch of the dining chair PIA CHAIR in 1959, he could also add the title chair designer to the CV.

He wanted to create a chair in the spirit of the time, inspired by other design chairs of the fifties, but lighter and more "petite", both in physical weight and in design expression. The chair was developed on a "less is more" concept, with focus on the least possible material consumption, still maintaining a high level of details and excellent comfort.

The thin, conical-shaped solid wooden legs give a light visual expression, which is further emphasized by two fine details; the hand-sanded rounding at the top of the back legs, and the finger joined front legs. The seat is made of hand-woven paper cordel, and the backrest is moulded, which gives an optimal seating comfort. It takes two hours just to hand-weave the seat, so the making of the chair is a time-consuming process which requires patience and high accuracy.
