Gigi Chair by Knoll
designed by Marco Maran
The Gigi Stacking Chair is a light, fun chair. Eye-catching colors (red, orange, lime green, blue, yellow, etc.) and a flexing, unconventional shape conspire to make the chair recognizable and mood-lifting. The Gigi Chair was designed by Italian Marco Maran, a man often feted for his lighthearted and utilitarian designs. This chair can come with or without arms, and is perfect for offices, schools, cafeterias, churches, and any congregational or hospitality area. Also available in the Gigi family are the Gigi Bar Stool and the Gigi Swivel Chair.
