Vico Magistretti “Carimate” Dining Chairs for Cassina, 1960

The ‘Carimate’ chair is one of Vico Magistretti’s most famous chairs.
These are the original red chairs but at some point they were painted over in a lime green white color.

Red is the original color designed for the dining room chairs for “Carimate Golf Club” in Como, Italy. The chairs changed to four different manufacturers until Magistretti requested a patent for the construction in 1963. The ‘Carimate’ chair is inspired by the tradition of countryside simple furniture, perfecting them. The combination of traditional Italian craftsmanship and modernism design creates a timeless chair.
