Pair of "Bastiano" Chairs by Afra and Tobia Scarpa

About

Something of an update of Gerrit Rietveld's avant-garde "Crate" chair, the "Bastiano" was itself a highly influential design. It is often mistaken for being a product of the 'seventies, though the Scarpas created it for legendary design impressario Dino Gavina as early as 1960. These examples are in excellent, original condition (except for the cushions, which were recently recovered).
