Practical yet elegant, Donald is a folding chair made from a single structure that is reminiscent of a duck’s beak: a pivoted die-cast limited section aluminium arch, with polished or matt finish, that guides and supports the seat, disappearing completely from view once it is folded. Designed by Studio Cerri & Associati, the Donald folding chair can gracefully appear and disappear on request, each time providing a lesson in style. The seat and backrest of the Donald folding chair are in thermoplastic material. The upholstery is in Pelle Frau® leather. It is also available in a version with armrests, also foldable and available in the same finish as the structure. This can be equipped with a right- or left-handed writing table. Various accessories are available for storing and connecting multiple chairs in a line.
