Donna was born of a quest for lightness to offer an accessory capable of adapting to different environments and situations. The slender metallic structure embraces the shell with a seat in the rear part of the backrest. The chair is made of metal and is available in several versions: the outdoor version is made of tone-on-tone or contrasting microperforated metal; the indoor version has a soft pad on the front that can be fully stuffed or not.
Donna offers many possibilities, not only in terms of use, but also customisation through a variety of colours, finishes and fabrics. This chair is a great addition to the Baleri Italia catalogue, which has always distinguished itself for its versatility and fine Italian design.
“Our design approach in creating a chair for a historic company like Baleri Italia focuses on a quest for lightness and to create a system,” explains Marialaura Rossiello of Studio Irvine, “The result is Donna, an agile chair with countless configurations for indoor or outdoor use that fits in any situation. And in keeping with the tradition of Baleri chairs, ours is named… Donna”.

Studio Irvine

Studio Irvine is a design studio located in Milan and run by architect Marialaura Rossiello Irvine.
Studio Irvine remains faithful to the design approach and method developed by James Irvine, in a combination of irony and precision. The cross-disciplinary philosophy pursued by the studio denotes a constant inclination and curiosity towards all types and scales of projects: from the design of a bus to that of a pen, from the art direction of a company to that of launching a new design brand.
In its 30-year history, the studio has woven a dense network of interactive relations among “design factories”, producers, artisans, graphic designers, curators, journalists, photographers and designers driven by a diversity of expertise, skills and visions in a common creative process focused on each new specific project.
The studio is a place whose rich collection of objects, prototypes, pictures, souvenirs, collections, drawings and history provides a continuing source of inspiration for future design projects.
