The DWR team wishes the happiest of birthdays to Mario Bellini: celebrated architect, industrial designer, teacher, spokesman, curator and editor (whew!). His namesake Bellini Chair® for Heller®, became an instaneous classic when it was introduced in 1998, and it continues to have a ubiquitous presence in cafés and public settings around the world.
