Lambda

1963
Sheet-metal chair
Gavina Bologna


With Marco Zanuso

Included in the Permanent Design Collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York

The Lambda was conceived by applying the technology of automobile body construction to the design of a chair. It consists of stamped and spot-welded steel sheet parts, which are then spray painted just like an automobile body. The Lambda was also produced in stainless steel and was available with a leather cover.
