Silla40 Chair

by Sancal

Price On Application

To commemorate Sancal's 40th anniversary, Isaac Piñeiro from the design studio Nadadora designed the Silla40 Chair to represent each of Sancal’s four decades. Instead of four totally different chairs, each chair shares the same structure but with different backs, each inspired by a key moment in the history of furniture design. The R20 back is inspired by Marcel Breuer and his Cesca chair. The R30 back is a nod to Scandinavian design in the ’30s and, in particular, the 69 chair by Alvar Aalto. The R40 version represents the organic design of the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s and celebrates the LCW chairs designed by Charles Eames. The postmodern influences of the ’70s are present in the R70 version, inspired by designs like those of Synthesis45 by Ettore Sottssas for Olivetti. This versatile and distinctive chair looks great either by itself or in a group and works well in both commercial and private spaces.

The chair is available with 4 different backs, all with either wooden or metal legs in multiple finishes, with option for armrests for the metal versions. The seat and backrest can be upholstered in a wide range of fabrics and leathers. For more information on the available sizes, materials and finishes please refer to the Product Tech Sheet and the various Sancal Materials and Finishes Catalogues in the Features tab under Additional Information.

The chair is part of the Grafica Collection comprised of stools, sofas, chairs and tables.

Isaac Piñeiro preserves the essence of NADADORA, the design studio that he founded along with Cristina Alonso 10 years ago. His conceptually honest, straightforward philosophy is evident in each and every piece.

Sancal is a Spanish design furniture brand with the motto of “Smile, break the mould and be happy!”. Their products are contemporary, timeless and eclectic, combining a strong identity with substantial scope for customisation.
