Thanks to the experience and mastery of our carpenter's workshop, the Cassina wooden chair is making a comeback. This chair adapts effortlessly to different environments and meets a broad range of aesthetic and economic needs. A new lease of life for a historic model which highlights the company's expert craftsmanship, the perfect embodiment of the 'MedaMade' brand. A simple chair with a refined, clear, cultured form, an icon of design. In 1952 the Leggera chair marked the beginning of a path that encapsulated the entire design and executive partnership between Gio Ponti, Cesare Cassina and his craftsmen in a one-off product, leading to the Superleggera in 1957. In contrast with the latter, distinctive for its slender triangular-section legs, the Leggera has uprights that are almost circular in profile and, because of its extreme durability and simplicity that expresses all the nobility of an anonymous object, it is a chair that has enjoyed widespread distribution and commercial success over the years. The frame is produced from solid ash in an array of variants designed to emphasise its elegance and enable it to be combined with other models in the catalogue. The seat is upholstered in fabric or leather (both removable upholsteries), or in natural cord. The multiple potential combinations between the tones of the ashwood structure and the various shades of the seat covers make this model extremely contemporary, a blend of colour and material contrasts suitable for use in both domestic and contract contexts.

- Frame: in solid natural ashwood or stained natural, black, white, walnut, mud, oil green or purple red.

- Seat: in natural or black or white cord padded with a rubber and velvet insert with removable fabric or leather cover, applied using velcro.
