Guglielmo Ulrich Pair of Lounge Chairs in Pink Velvet Upholstery

$22,000per set

About

Guglielmo Ulrich, pair of lounge chairs, oak, velvet upholstery, Italy, 1940s   Guglielmo Ulrich, an Italian influential designer and architect of the 1940s-1960s, designed this pair of comfortable lounge chairs with a great eye to proportions. The rounded forms of the armrests and the slightly tilted backrest in combination with the short geometrical and tapered legs forms an inviting lounge chair with well-designed forms. Upholstered in a soft pink velvet fabric, the chairs radiate charm.   Guglielmo Ulrich (1904-1977) was an Italian architect, furniture designer and writer. After attending the Scuola Speciale di Architettura at the Brera Academy and graduating in architecture at Politecnico di Milano in 1927 Ulrich started his successful career. Together with Renato Wild he founded a furniture manufacturing company called ‘Arca’ in 1930. The company focused on exquisite materials and luxurious designs. Ulrich worked as an architect and interior and furniture designer mainly for the Milanese upper class but also wrote books about furniture and the Italian style of that time. One example is the book titled ‘Arredamenti, mobili e oggetti d’arte decorative’ which illustrates the style of the 1930s. His designs are characterized by organic, vivid forms combined with the refined use of materials and striking craftsmanship. Ico Parisi summarized Ulrich’s impact as a designer as the following: “Ulrich was certainly a figure at the forefront among the architects and designers working in Milan at the time: a group of personalities of great value who, like it or not, are those to refer to for the history of the architecture of the 1940s and 1950s.”
