Tripolina Design is the project of a company that blossomed from the experience of two generations of Italian furniture manufacturers and retailers. Its goal is to create incomparable, imperfect and unique items as only Italian craftsmanship can.

Easy transportable folding chairs that are always by your side in your car, on your boat, on holidays, and in ordinary life, going from home to home and space to space. Pieces of furniture that can fly with you on a plane. Timeless accessories that show elegance and taste.


We bring old projects back to life thanks to the experienced hands of Italian artisans.


Although the real creator remains unknown, the story goes that the Tripolina chair was patented in 1877 by Joseph B. Fendy and was first introduced to the public at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904.

We for sure know that the Tripolina chair became famous thanks to its use by the English army during its military campaigns of the 19th century. Over the years, this folding chair has inspired great designers and great projects, including the Butterfly Chair, known as the BFK Chair; an Argentinian project by Antonio Bonet, Juan Kurchan and Jorge Ferrari-Hardoy of 1938 and picked up by Knoll for its 80th anniversary and the wonderful Kenia Chair by Vico Magistretti.
