In 1958 Bruno Munari examined the way of talking without using words in his famous “Supplemento al dizionario italiano” (“Addition to Italian dictionary”): Munari’s aim was to catalogue hand gestures, facial expressions and attitudes of a person as a whole, in order to give a real instrument of communication. Fifty years after the first publication of Munari’s ironic and funny primer, Claesson, Koivisto Rune studio proposes a project that was born from a careful analysis of body gestures. They also translate them into an iconic and suggestive shape, but at the same time geometric and essential one. From the visual form of the verbal language – borrowed from the simple configuration of the letter “u” – the Swedish designers translate the game of three- dimensional extrusion, starting from the silent language of human body. In fact, the armchair “Pisa” is a minimal object, an intimate and reduced space, created to enfold the person, leaving space to his most hidden expressions, but without forgetting its comfort and daily use. Therefore, the characteristic lines of “Pisa” – the slightly reclined backrest and the cut profile – come out when you seat on it, when the objectivity of empty elements, curves and geometric shapes, is balanced by a methodical plan based on the gestural expression of everyone.Mainly designed for public spaces, offices or hotels, “Pisa” is an upholstered armchair with a small size, suitable for narrow spaces, where it can be used to furnish warm and welcoming public areas.
