Mammamia chair was originally designed by Marcello Ziliani for Opinion Ciatti. The Mammamia punk chair is a special version of the chair inspired by the British punk fashion movement and its “revival”.
Indeed, in 2013 the new-rock style re-appeared on catwalks and punk studs were seen everywhere: from garment details to even more unexpected surfaces. In our case, punk studs grew on the back seat of the Mammamia punk chair.
The Mammamia Chair comes with a die-cast aluminum frame and structure in galvanized iron, fully painted with water based paints. For the special punk chair edition its back got fully covered in a pattern of studs. Luckily, the 398 metal studs were not placed on the inner side of the back seat, or more dramatically, on the seat itself for a high impact (but extremely unpractical) design statement.
Instead, Opinion Ciatti voted for function and this special edition of the Mammamia chair remains neat and sleek, of an extremely clean-lined and compelling design, while the studded back adds texture to it. A refreshing view of a beloved object!
