Notes from the Archive: Quinta is more than a chair; it is architecture that you sit upon. Designed in 1985, this iconic chair shows the influence of Botta's mentors including Le Corbusier, Louis Kahn and Carlo Scarpa. The shape of the slotted steel back and seat allow for flex in the material as you sit or lean back, adding unexpected comfort. The architectural lines of the chair design are reminiscent of Botta's design for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art building, his first building in the U.S. An example of this chair is now on view at the Museum of Modern Art. This is your opportunity to acquire one of the last examples of new production of this collectible and iconic design.
