Tessa chair - Flexform - Antonio Citterio

About The Product

Flexform’s Tessa chair designed by Antonio Citterio is a complex chair despite its simple form. 

The structure is made entirely of solid ash or turned walnut.  The traditional joinery requires expert craftsmanship and gently exalts the natural texture and feel of the wood.
