100% Made in Italy. Open pore black lacquered ashwood frame. Seat padded in polyurethane foam. Leather or fabric upholstery.
This famous chair, which is narrow and tall, was conceived by Mackintosh more for decorative intentions than purely for function. It was destined, along with its twin, to the bedroom of the “Hill” house near Glasgow in Helensburgh, which the architect designed in 1902 and that belonged to publisher Walter W. Blackie. The two chairs, in black ebanized wood, are still there and maintain their original effect, standing out against completely bare walls. The “Hill House” is considered a fundamental work of Mackintosh, because it shows the extraordinary vision, talent and leadership of the master, who – far from outmoded art noveau style – expressed himself through new severe and stylized lines, in a functionalist search which, years later, would be the distinctive trademark of the Bauhaus. Open pore lacquered ashwood frame. Polyurethane foam seat. Leather or fabric upholstery.

C.R. Mackintosh


Furniture is passion, an expression of our love of life.

A native Scot from Glasgow, today Mackintosh is considered a fundamental reference point for Liberty style, although his line was very personal, because his ideas essentially anticipated the times. His architectural designs, conceived for elementary volumetric blocks, are aspired to an extreme clarity and structural rationality. He was the first to create interiors with entirely white walls, overcoming the concept of the “facade” in architecture, and drawing inspiration from Celtic and primitive art for his forms.

His furniture designs are also highly original and innovative; during the course of his career, he designed rigidly geometric furniture, preferably black, bearing a strong decorative stamp. Mackintosh loved wood and treated it like a supple, malleable material, covering it with lacquer, to hide seams and joints, enhancing only its definitive forms. For Mackintosh, architectonic space and furniture were the same total work of art. This is why – like many figures of the Modern Movement – he personally attended to even the tiniest details (even wallpaper, lighting, tableware), and refused works where he could not exercise a complete control.
