The Antropus armchair by Marco Zanuso for Cassina, experimentation takes the spotlight.
In 1948 The Skin of Our Teeth by Thornton Wilder was one of the first comedies performed at the Piccolo Teatro in Milan. Zanuso – who also designed the interior of the theatre with E. N. Rogers in 1952 and, years later, the new site – was commissioned to design the scenery and furnishings for this play. These included an armchair for which he used new materials with which he had been experimenting and that he named the Antropus. This completely upholstered armchair is distinguished by its depth, which makes a large and comfortable seat, contained by lateral panels with a sleek and sinuous profile.
This armchair is also available in an iconic edition upholstered in pink fabric to underline the originality of the design.
