In the late 1980's, Lella and Massimo Vignelli were commissioned to design a television set for the daily news broadcast. It would usher in a new approach to the genre: rather than simply “talking heads”, people would now be shot full body. The Intervista armchair was designed to fit this purpose: an evolution of the bucket-style chair, carefully designed to ensure maximum comfort of the user with minimal adjustments.
