Luca Nichetto has reinterpreted the Tyrolean chair, that iconic element in the imagination of a mountain interior, in a contemporary way for Casamania.

“The chair becomes almost a recognizable character, like a relative or a close friend, and its name is a pun on Ladin (lingua ladina, in Italian), the language spoken by the people who, in the past, built their settlements on the Dolomites.” says Nichetto.

La-Dina employs a simple and robust assembly system; the legs are fixed into the solid wood of the seat, which in turn is secured to the backrest by a clamping wedge applied by pressure. “The rounded lines and the different colors of the wood make it an elegant chair, suitable for various home environments… not only in the mountains.”
