Togetherness – the upholstered chair 520 by Marco Dessí represents contemporary elegance and communicative togetherness

With its various versions, the 520 by Marco Dessí is the perfect chair, and not just for dining tables: sitting comfort comes together with a visual and physical lightness. It has a confident elegance that carries the culture and history of the classic Thonet bentwood chair within. In his design, Dessí replaced the empty spaces between the bentwood elements with comfortable upholstery. The simple, intelligent construction allows for a variety of versions, with or without armrests. Combined with a large selection of cover materials, the chair range is suitable for a wide range of uses, from sophisticated dining to executive meetings.

Marco Dessi

Marco Dessí (born 1976 in Merano) lives and works in Vienna. He studied Industrial Design at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. Since founding his own design studio in 2007, he has already realised a number of projects with well-known Austrian manufacturers as well as international producers. Dessí’s approach is practical and cooperative, design is understood as an interactive process. Selfinitiated projects serve to experiment with materials and challenge processes that are later applied to commercial projects or further developed for industrial or craft reproduction processes. In the case of commissioned work, the design work is always preceded by an accurate examination of the companies, the respective production methods and their inherent potential. The studio is not fixed on a specific style, preferred materials or a uniform formula, but rather regards design as a craft in which a deep understanding of materials, processes and their interrelationships form design parameters. In the uncompromising combination of function, construction and aesthetics, the quest for the perfect design object is fulfilled; the logic of assembly and disassembly, the precise relations of form and dimension are just as relevant as intelligent material combinations and sophisticated detailed concepts.
