The Chiavari Chair

The Chiavari Chairs (Also known as the Tiffany Chair, coined by Latin America and Mexico) can convey a more formal air during the ceremony. This common dining metal chair was originally created and designed by a cabinetmaker named Giuseppe Gaetano Descalzi in the town of Chiavari, Italy. This style of chair with faux bamboo columns first appeared in the year 1807 when the Economic Society of Chiavari’s president asked him to recreate some chairs for their facility.

In order to create a lightweight piece that is simple in form but versatile and robust in function, Descalzi lightened the structure, stripping each part of the chair down to its most basic, and using only local materials. The result is the perfect balance of weight and strength that is the hallmark of this chair to this day.

Aluminum - The Best and Impeccable Material

Aluminum is a soft but tough chemical element that belongs to the group of light metals. It is the most common element in the earth's crust after oxygen and silicon, and the most commonly used metal after steel. Since the end of the 19th century, aluminum has been extracted from bauxite through the Bayer process (developed by Carl Josef Bayer in 1887). Aluminum does not exist in pure form naturally, but in the form of chemical compounds and was therefore not discovered until the beginning of the 19th century. The first aluminum industries emerged in 1888 in Switzerland and the United States.
