Michele De Lucchi, 2013


Donzella is an elegant armchair with structure in solid ash with natural transparent varnish finish. A finely crafted, archetypal chair inspired by the "deftness of the farmer/craftsman who made his own work tools" and who long ago resolved the problem of connecting a seat to legs.

  • Structure in aniline-stained ash in black walnut color. Both options finished with clear natural varnish.
  • Seat in handwoven paper cord or padded with polyurethane and covered in fabric or leather.
  • 25.2"w 21.3"d 29.1"h
  • Made in Italy by De Padova.
  • Care and maintenance disclaimer: papercord, cane, and wicker materials must be properly cared for to prevent damage:
  • Never use cleaning tools containing iron.
  • Use a wrung cloth for daily maintenance, always cover all areas evenly.
  • Papercord and cane should be washed in soap water one to two times a year or as necessary.
  • Use a soft sponge or cloth, all superfluous soap water should be dried off with a dry cloth.
  • Cane can break if dried-out, keep soft through frequent washing with soap water. Wash cane on both sides and dry off any superfluous water.
