Trattoria is a very simple and traditional chair.
the name Trattoria refers in fact to those small Italian restaurants, where this kind of chair with straw seat was used. The chair Trattoria by Magis has replaced straw by plastic (or better by polycarbonate), maintaining at the same time the quality and easiness of the old chair.
