Chester Lit Armchair

rotational-molded polyethylene
28 1/2 x 47 x 32 inches

The classic Chesterfield seating, with button tufting and rounded armrests, is given an entirely new interpretation in the Chester Lit Armchair (2009). The DWR Design Studio asked Deep Design (Italian designers Raffaella Mangiarotti and Matteo Bazzicalupo) to help fine tune this innovative outdoor seating solution. We knew Mangiarotti would understand our design constraints – her Dandelion Lamp is now included in MoMA’s permanent collection. This product’s unique and innovative drainage system – a proprietary invention of Serralunga, our manufacturing partner – ensures that Chester will stand up to the elements. Simple assembly required for the light fixture. Made in Italy.

  • Install the included light fixture by removing the plastic cap on the bottom of the Armchair. It is necessary to drill holes in the bottom to accommodate the fixture’s screws.
  • The included light fixture will illuminate the entire Armchair.
  • Included light fixture comes with an energy-efficient compact fluorescent bulb. It is UL rated and includes a ten-foot cord that plugs into any standard 120-volt outlet.
