The 9000 Armchair, designed by Tito Agnoli, is a part of the 9000 collection which offers a compact, curving seating system. Unlike the sofa, it stays a single piece that doesn’t connect or configure with other pieces.
Tito Agnoli, born 1931, Lima, Peru, was an Italian architect and lighting and furniture designer. He specialized in industrial design and after he graduated, worked as an assistant to Gio Ponti and Carlo de Carli. In the 1950s and throughout the 1960s and 1970s, he mainly designed lighting and furniture. He designed for such companies as Arflex, Oluce, Cinova, Lema, Molteni, Pierantonio Bonacina, Poltrona Frau, Schiffini, and Ycami. He was nominated for the Compasso d’Oro award a few times and in 1986 won a gold medal at the NeoCon exhibition in Chicago.
