The first rendition of the Frank Lloyd Wright Taliesin Origami Chair was produced by Cassina between 1986 and 1990. Thirty years later Cassina has unveiled a new version. Completely manufactured in Cassina’s carpentry workshop, the armchair combines hand craftsmanship with the most advanced wood processing technologies. Wright conceived this chair in 1949 for his last home in Arizona, Taliesin West. Crafted from a single sheet of beech plywood defined by a complex fold, the chair creates balance defying geometry and evokes the famous Japanese art after which it is named, creating an iconic piece that shows Wright's orientation towards more daring and sophisticated solutions.
