Pair of Cassina no. 829 Highback Lounge Chairs by Gio Ponti, Parco dei Principe

$18,170.16per set

About the Item

Listed is a rare set of two Cassina no. 829 highback lounge chairs, designed by Gio Ponti for the Hotel Parco dei Principi in Sorrento in the 1960s. In 1961, engineer and entrepreneur Roberto Fernandes bought two plots of land – one in Sorrento and one in Rome – to build the Hotel Parco dei Principi and recruited Gio Ponti to design both. The hotel in Sorrento was built from the ground-up and prominently featured Ponti’s iconic ceramic mosaics, circular motifs and was almost completely blue and white — complementing the vast sea and sky that surrounded it. This lovely set of model 829 lounge chairs is the non-reclinable version. It combines organic forms with restrained elegance — and most importantly: the comfort is truly phenomenal. Chairs are newly upholstered in a soft and sturdy Tonus 4 (color 508) from Kvadrat, celebrating the blue and white Parco dei Principe vibe. The woodwork is refinished and in immaculate condition. Both chairs retain its makers mark, Figli di Amadeo Cassina, Meda. The longer you look at this elegant set, the more it takes your breath away: a chance to own a piece of Italian Modern Design History. Lit.: Gio Ponti — L’Arte Si Innamora Dell’Industria, La Pietra, p. 367 General note: Shipping quotes as supplied by 1stdibs are only indicative.
