We kindly suggest that you read the whole description, as with it we try to give you detailed technical and historical information to guarantee the authenticity of our objects. Very comfortable and elegant upholstered armchair; the frame is very solid with sturdy legs made of polished and brushed brass; the seat is deliberately low but large and comfortable; the wide overall appearance has soft and pleasing lines, perfect for conveying a feeling of comfort and well-being. The armchair was made between 1960 and 1963 by an artisan workshop in Meda (Milan, Italy) that collaborated with several Lombard architects; for the creation of the armchair, the artisans were inspired by architect Marco Zanuso, following his design. Marco Zanuso (1916-2001) was among the greatest interpreters of the culture of the modern, as an architect, designer, and university lecturer; he was one of the first designers to take an interest in the problems of product industrialization, going beyond the aesthetic question to incorporate technological, industrial, distribution and communication variables. The form of an object intended for serial reproduction, according to Zanuso, is thus a synthesis of opportunities, experimentation, and innovations located in the concrete process that links creativity, production, and sociocultural context. His countless creations include the Lady armchair, and the Antropus armchair, and his collaboration with companies such as Brionvega, Necchi, Borletti, Kartell, and many others. The armchair has recently been handed over to an old Master craftsman of Prato, who has executed by hand with skill and precision the new upholstery in elegant and refined velvet of exceptional red color. We would like to remind you that the city of Prato is considered the largest textile center in the world, its craftsmen and companies, highly specialized, are a reference point for creativity, quality, and excellence. Our armchair has taken on a personal and unrepeatable charm, becoming a discreet and original piece of furniture, capable of creating calm and tranquil atmospheres, giving romanticism and sophistication to any type of decor. Measurements width cm.50, depth cm.54, height cm.80, seat cm.31. The armchair has been upholstered, so in excellent condition. For all our shipments we use special packing materials (wooden crates, styrofoam, etc.) for maximum protection and safety of the items.
