For over 90 years Italian design icon Calligaris has been in the furniture making business. From humble beginnings, Antonio Calligaris’ first piece of commercial furniture was the Marocca chair, a utilitarian chair typical of the Friuli region of north-east Italy. A sturdy wooden frame with a hand-woven seat, accentuated by legs that curved out slightly. Production of the chair involved women weaving the seats and apprentices handling the dying of the straw. Today Calligaris is sold in over 90 countries around the world. Fiercely loyal, the Calligaris family still produce most of their beautiful collection of lounge and dining furniture in Italy.
