Landi Chair – By Hans Coray, 1938
Technical innovation, optimal use of materials, minimalist forms and understated elegance have made the Landi Chair (1938) by Hans Coray a classic that looks as fresh and vital today as ever.Developed for the 1939 Swiss National Exhibition (Schweizer Landesausstellung), the Landi Chair by Hans Coray – Vitra occupies an important place in the history of twentieth-century design: this classic by Hans Coray established the new typology of a three-dimensionally moulded seat shell on a separate base. Landi Chair Vitra by  Hans Coray The clear structure of the all-aluminium chair consists of two parts.The lightweight, stackable Landi Chair is robust and weather-resistant. Technical innovation, optimal use of materials, minimalist forms and understated elegance are the elements that have made the Landi Chair into a classic over the years, which looks as fresh and vital today as ever.Throughout his lifetime, Hans Coray (1906–1991) positioned himself at the intersection of art, design and architecture, attaching great importance to functionality and simplicity. From the 1950s onward, he was primarily active as a painter and sculptor.Landi & Davy Set – Vitra

Davy Table Michel Charlot, 2014

The Davy Table is a robust new design for outdoor use.. The young Swiss designer Michel Charlot developed this table to complement the legendary Landi Chair designed by Hans Coray in the same material. The table has a punched hole in the middle of the top to accommodate a sun umbrella.
Bistro tables usually have only one central leg. Michel Charlot has opted for four legs: A ploy hinting at Hans Coray’s design. His drawing shows four bent L-shaped aluminium profile legs. They are individually screwed to the tabletop and meet in the central plug-in connection which is located directly underneath the hole for the sunshade. The table can be mounted in five minutes, and only four screws need to be tightened.The same adhesive is used for gluing the legs. This appeals to the designer: ‘In this way, my work has influenced the re-birth of the classic chair.’ His aim is to solve classic industrial design problems, to work out details and to deliberate over optimising costs and quality. The ribbing within these profiles gives the legs increased stiffness. ‘No-one else makes aluminium tables, people usually use steel’, says Michel Charlot. They are too light, they are not stable enough and too expensive. The use of such a thin sheet of aluminium called for a number of strain tests to see where forces occur. People need to be able to lean on the edge of the table without the table tipping over. The chair and the table are to be the same colour.
