The stylistic purity of the Hard Dress chair by Piero Lissoni invites multiple interpretations. For a more solemn and discrete version, with or without armrests, the piece can be upholstered with a removable cover with a traditional inverted pleat, in a selection of the fabrics from the collection.
The design takes on a fashionable edge for the Hard Dress Zip, a chair with a leather jacket: the iconic zipper was inspired by the famous “Perfecto” jacket from the roaring ‘80s rocker style. For this chair, with leather upholstery, Lissoni successfully gave a bold new form of expression to the seat, highlighting the geometric silhouette with a prominent double zipper that is both decorative and functional, enabling the removal of the cover.
With the Hard Dress Dragon chair, Lissoni gives the seat a twist of the allure of ancient China, with red or blue removable fabric cover adorned with lavish embroidery depicting a dragon on back: this element was inspired by the typical embroidery on the armour of the imperial guards under the Ming dynasty.
