Uragano is an armchair based on the types of chair sitting on the porch of the houses of the early 20th century and on the elegant wicker furniture of the Liberty period that, in the De Padova catalogue, are combined with some rattan centre cane outdoor furniture. The masters of modern design such as Loos, Van de Velde and Le Corbusier all tried their hand at designing braided rattan furniture. Magistretti designed a square structure in solid wood, aniline-dyed in blue or yellow, topped by a braided natural wicker seat (treated with transparent polyurethane paint), with a curved profile that joins the backrest with the armrests and features a double curve on the sides, the only decorative and constructive concession he granted himself.
