Designed by Toshiyuki Kita in 2000. Manufactured by Cassina in Italy. A design that responds to the needs of modern-day society and the rhythms of life in the era of the home office, where the technology is “always on”, as much in the home as it is in the work space. The objective was to create a mobile sitting-room in the form of a comfortable and dynamic armchair that could swivel through 360 degrees, while also being comfortable. Suited to many contexts, including the “soft contract” setting, this chair is also available with an armrest on either side, one of which can serve as a head-rest. The Canta armchair has a movable armrest that can be used as a headrest.
