Acerbis Re-Issues Iconic Due Più Chair

Nanda Vigo's Due Più armchair (translation: "Two More" and also known as "Manifesto") is a mesmerizing blend of art, architecture, and design. Created in 1971, this iconic piece features two floating rollers as its seat and back, set within a sleek metallic structure that reflects Vigo's minimal geometric aesthetic.

But what really sets it apart is the furry upholstery. Originally made with Mongolian wool, the fur is now sourced from food industry waste—a spirited choice that adds opulence and sustainability in line with contemporary ethics.

Due Più showcases the duality of Vigo's creative soul—the architect's precision in the metallic framework and the eccentric, pioneering spirit seen in the voluminous fur. Mass-produced for the very first time by manufacturer Acerbis, the armchair brings this visionary design to a wider audience. Its unique construction allows for versatile seating experiences—regular, side, or reverse sitting—which creates an interactive and playful aspect.
