Digamma Armchair by Santa and Cole
Design by Ignazio Gardella, 1957

When Gardella wanted to steer away from the rigid tenets of the modern movement, in which he had nevertheless been educated and heavily involved, he came up with this metal chaise longue with a rationalist body, stringently formed by two geometric volumes, albeit imbued with the irony of his notorious “duck feet”.
He was also able to offer the benefit of a three-position reclining backrest and additionally designed a matching footrest that could be bought to go with it.
