Ignazio Gardella 'Digamma' Armchair in Purple Dedar Fabric and Brass, 2022

About the Item

Designed by Ignazio Gardella in 1957, the Digamma lounge chair is a comfortable chair with roots in the late Italian modernist tradition. Its rational construction features two geometric sections - the rectangular upholstered back and seat - bound by a firm upholstered frame. The black metallic legs are finished off with Gardella's iconic brass 'duck' feet. The armchair has a three-position reclining backrest offering additional comfort and adjustability. This chair is a custom version realized by Santa & Cole for Kabinet Hubert, upholstered and sewn by hand in a purple Dedar fabric. This wool blend fabric has a beautiful, soft texture with a wonderful saturated and intense color. Ignazio Gardella was a member of the so-called third generation of the Modern Movement. He is considered one of the greatest exponents of Italian Rationalism, although he followed its principles in a much more personal way, searching to overcome its limitations. In 1957, he created the Digamma armchair which was produced by Gavina. In 2005 the Barcelona based Santa & Cole has been assigned by Gavina to produce this official re-edition. In this armchair Gardella showed his capacity to join harmoniously elements that belonged to opposite styles at first sight, a common characteristic of most of his works.

  • Gustave Gautier Attributed Armchair in Oak and Jacquard Fabric, France, 1950s
    By Nobilis, Gustave Gautier
    Located in The Hague, NL
    This rare armchair was produced in France in the late 1950s. The design of this particular model is attributed to the designer Gustave Gautier. The chair is characterized by the sharp angles, geometric lines and scissor construction of the solid oak wood frame. The pointed back legs form a diagonal line and are widening towards the front of the seat. The front legs form a second diagonal line and a scissor shape in combination with the back legs. They're attached to the backrest and to the arms, which are executed in a narrowing, pointed line again. The armrests attached on top of the arms end in a rounded, more organic shape. The chair has been newly upholstered in a sumptuous ivory/ light cream jacquard Nobilis Paris fabric. By combining very irregular woolly yarns and thrown threads, the fabric has a refined texture and appearance. The oak wood is in very good original condition with a natural, attractive patina. Other designers working in the same French Modern style include Guillerme & Chambron...
