NAVONA ARMCHAIRSIgnazio Gardella
Digamma armchair designed by Ignazio Gardella dating back to Gavina’s production. Original structure and components, recently upholstered with linen velvet. Digamma was one of the first models to go beyond the limits of rationalism. Armchair formed by two rigorously geometric volumes, albeit imbued with the irony of its notorious “duck feet”. Metallic structure. Rubber padding on elastic straps. Three-position reclining backrest. Brass finishes.
