by Ghidini 1961
Dodo Armchair is an elegant armchair designed by Stefano Giovannoni and produced by Ghidini 1961. Dodo (also called Frame 2) is an evolution of the Frame Armchair: it adopts the same extruded aluminium frame but combines it with a different joint and feet base. The supporting frame brushes the floor without touching it, while the generous height of the seat cushions provides great comfort. The Dodo is ideal for both private and contract use.
The Dodo Armchair is available in a large selection of upholstery and multiple metal finishes. Please see the Ghidini Materials and Finishes Catalogue under the Features tab and contact us for more information.
The Dodo Collection includes various sofas, armchairs and cushions.
