Modus

1972

The glossy iconic chair.

One of the first experimentation of plastic applied to furniture: the choice of injection cast nylon makes the body pleasing to touch and look at, while ensuring high mechanical resistance. The mirror finished aluminium base is painted black internally to enhance the slender shape of the product intensifying its visual impact. 

Modus is not only one chair, but a series of possibilities: black or white shell, optional padding on the seat or on the backrest, on wheels or fixed feet, with or without armrests; it is available in the stackable version on trestle frame base or as swivel chair with height adjustment and 5 spoke base. The combination of various components makes it suitable for different types of spaces.

Union and iconicity

The Modus system comprises a total of 65 different component pieces but when the chair is assembled, whether on a 5-star base or on four legs, it remains simple, logical and attractive.

Technology and innovation

The characteristic “spider” frame which connects the seat to the semi-circular base is a unique and patented kind of support.  “Support for the Seat of a Chair” patent no. 3,827,750 issued on 6 August 1974.
