Italian designer chair, original Plia straw and chrome folding chair designed by Giancarlo Piretti for Castelli in 1974.

The Plia model was a limited edition folding chair and was produced by Anonima Castelli for the XV Triennale of Milan.

The seat and back are made of straw and when closed, the chair is only 5 cm thick. The chair is in excellent condition there is just one tiny snag to the underside of the straw seat but this has been glued so it wont unravel.

These chairs were such a design classic, they are included in the permanent exhibition at the MoMA in New York. The designer developed the 3-layer-joint with a smart, flat folding mechanism that lead to the chair becoming such an icon.

Measures 51 cm wide, 76 cm high, and 48 cm deep. The seat height measures 43 cm
