Carlotta armchair by Afra and Tobia Scarpa for Cassina

Dezeen Showroom: Italian furniture brand Cassina has reissued the Carlotta armchair, designed by husband-wife duo Afra and Tobia Scarpa in 1967, for its outdoor collection.

Tobia Scarpa, who has worked alone since the death of his wife in 2011, collaborated with Cassina to reimagine the Carlotta armchair in durable, weather-resistant materials.

The armchair was originally designed in 1967

The revamped design features a low-slung teak frame and cushions padded with recycled PET fibre.

"Carlotta has an informal, carefree soul with an ample and welcoming seat," Cassina explained.

Woven cords are threaded into a linear pattern across the chair's backrest, functioning as both support and subtle decoration.

Carlotta is available in a range of outdoor fabrics from Cassina's collection, which are able to withstand a variety of weather conditions.
