Guscioalto - Guscioalto Light | Antonio Citterio | 2011


Guscioalto is an especially comfortable, high-backed wing chair (bergère) known for its couture tailoring. The structure is an enveloping shell made of structural polyurethane foam, while the seat cushion is in goose down with a core insert in crushproof material. To ensure the utmost in comfort, the Guscioalto Soft version comes with additional padding in the seat back and an extra layer of Dacron and memory foam.
