In the late 1980’s Lella and Massimo Vignelli were commissioned to design a television set for the broadcasting of the news. It would usher in a new approach to news broadcasting: rather than simply “talking heads”, people would now be shot full body.
The “Intervista” armchair was designed to fit this purpose: an evolution of the bucket-style chair, carefully designed to ensure the maximum comfort of the user and a posture that does not affect their tone of voice.
Intervista is an armchair with a supporting structure, for the shell and seat, in steel upholstered with moulded polyurethane. The seat spring system consists of elastic belts. The upholstery of the Intervista armchair is in Pelle Frau® leather.
