Luca Nichetto's La-Dina is a contemporary reinterpretation of traditional wooden chairs from the Dolomite mountain range in west Austria and north-east Italy.
Its name is a pun on Ladin – Ladina in Italian – the language spoken by the people who once built their settlements in the region.
Luca Nichetto has simplified the form, using rounded lines and including a small upside-down triangular hole that punctures the back rest.
The legs are fixed into the solid wood of the seat, which in turn is secured to the backrest using a clamping wedge.
La-Dina is made from ash wood and is available in a range of colours.
The design marks Casamania's 30th anniversary and the 10th anniversary of its collaboration with Nichetto.
The brand is exhibiting at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Hall 16 Stand D39, in Milan until 13 April.
