A Cinderella that turns into a Princess,” we could write, to paraphrase Aurelio Zanotta about the process that led to the creation of the Maggiolina lounge chair. Starting from the hypothesis of an inexpensive, dismantable armchair, it was designed by Marco Zanuso towards the end of the 1940s for a competition held by the MoMA of New York. It had a structure of curved steel tubing from which a burlap ‘bag’ was hung, the ‘pockets’ of which contained two panels of plywood, inserted to support the two padded cushions used as seat and backrest.
