Modern Liberty Armchair High Back in Polished Brass and Green Velvet Cushions

$5,690per item


1. Product description: The “Liberty” high back armchair is made with folded hand polished brass tubes. They are welded and treated by jewellers and silversmiths so that the welds are imperceptible. The brass is hand polished for hours until its shine is in perfect condition. In the end, the brass is protected with a high end anti-stain varnish to prevent oxidations. The cushions of the armchair are upholstered in high end velvet 100% cotton. Bessa prides itself on creating handmade functional art furniture built to order by highly skilled Portuguese artisans. 2. Inspiration: The sculptural forms of the 30´s inspired the 'Liberty Collection'. The tubular and steel structures that have marked those years are combined with a new inspiration that emphasizes the antagonistic feeling of deprivation of liberty. This conjunction marks the alliance of a vintage style with modern sensibilities. The curvy and exaggerated shapes of the chair´s arms symbolize the end of enclosed spaces which are transformed into open doors to freedom. 3. Product dimensions: W 112cm (44.1"), H 145cm (57.1"), D 94cm (37") 4. Materials: Hand-polished brass tube, anti-stain varnish, 100% cotton velvet cushions (All colors available). Optional: - Fire retardant fabrics and foams - Waterproofing and anti-stain treatment for fabrics Note: All Bessa´s pieces can be customized upon request. 5. Product style: Modern midcentury, modern vintage and contemporary. 6. Product design sate: 2013 7. Product origin: Portugal. 8. Designer/ builder: This sculptural chair was designed and created by the artist and designer Joao Bessa, founder of Bessa. 9. Installation/ cleaning and care: Easy to install.
