Porta Volta chair is designed by Herzog & de Meuron for Molteni&C with structure in solid ash wood stained or solid American walnut; seat and backrest in plywood support with variable density polyurethane padding and cover in bonded velveteen, cotton and polyester fibre, with removable upholstery in fabric, leather or velvet. Feet in non-slip plastic.

Available in two sizes, with or without padded backrest.


The Porta Volta Chair marks a new chapter of collaboration between the historic brand and the renowned international architectural firm. The Porta Volta Chair highlights the relationship between the upholstered seat and the solid timber back, the defining element of the design. The floating backrest extends around the perimeter of the seat in a U-shape, extending forward to create the armrests, and resting on 3 intersecting wooden U-frames that feature a special curved bent “finger joint” detail at their rounded corners. 

The chair has been imagined in two different sizes to allow for flexibility and a wider scope of use. The first is suited for dining while the second, referred to as a low chair, is intended for a living or a sitting room. A special edition of the chair will be used in the reading room of the National Library of Israel in Jerusalem.
