Description Designed by Ignazio Gardella in 1957, the Digamma lounge chair is a comfortable chair with roots in the late Italian modernist tradition.
Its rational construction features two geometric sections - the rectangular upholstered back and seat - bound by a firm upholstered frame. The black metallic legs are finished off with Gardella's iconic brass 'Duck' feet. The armchair has a three-position reclining backrest offering additional comfort and adjustability.

This chair is a custom version realized by Santa & Cole for Kabinet Hubert, upholstered and sewn by hand in a navy blue Pilot fabric designed by Raf Simons for Kvadrat. This sophisticaded bouclé fabric combines the softness and intense colour of merino wool with the lustre of contrasting yarns.

Ignazio Gardella was a member of the so-called third generation of the Modern Movement. He is considered one of the greatest exponents of Italian Rationalism, although he followed its principles in a much more personal way, searching to overcome its limitations. In 1957, he created the Digamma armchair which was produced by Gavina. In 2005 the Barcelona based Santa & Cole has been assigned by Gavina to produce this official re-edition. In this armchair Gardella showed his capacity to join harmoniously elements that belonged to opposite styles at first sight, a common characteristic of most of his works.
