Jot chair, Giotto Stoppino - Acerbis Design
Year
1976 – 2021
Designer

Celebrating stainless steel in the Bauhaus tradition, the tubular chrome-framed Jot chair takes its swooping, balletic form into the contemporary era with a new version purified of any paint or dye that would hide the essence of its powerful metal and rawhide leather elements. An iconic example of Giotto Stoppino’s masterful use of cantilevered chair styles and his exploratory method with materials.

Video by Lorenzo Gironi

A video directed by Lorenzo Gironi, shot entirely on film, in which seven products, integral part of the Acerbis’ heritage, reemerge under a new light. A game, a succession of unprecedented contaminations, suggestions, sounds, oppositions and unions.

Product plus

Bauhaus inspiration that captures the spirit of the school that combined aesthetic research and functionality.

Jointless assembly allowing replacement of the leather cover.

The design of the structure exploits the inherent characteristics of the curved metal to give the chair greater flexibility.
