Afra & Tobia Scarpa Plywood Dining Chairs, 1973, Set of 8

About the Item

Afra & Tobia Scarpa plywood dining chairs, metal and plywood, Italy, 1973, set of eight. Following the typical geometric line of the Scarpa duo, this particular chair features an ergonomic plywood seating and back. The structure is firm and solid, enriched by typical Scarpa’s elements such as the visible iron screws on the legs. Afra Bianchin (1937-2011) and Tobia Scarpa (1935) began their long collaboration in 1957. Starting from 1960, they collaborated with companies like Gavina, B&B Italia, and Cassina. Innovators and unconventional thinkers, they developed numerous projects discovering new ways of mixing different materials and shapes. Their pieces are exhibited in many museums worldwide, such as the MoMa in New York and the Musée du Louvre in Paris. We offer custom restoration and special reupholstering on request. Our atelier enhances Italy's excellence by providing dedicated and tailor-made customization services. Contact us for additional information.

    By Afra & Tobia Scarpa, Cassina
    Located in Lonigo, Veneto
    Afra & Tobia Scarpa "121" dining chairs for Cassina, red leather, Italy, 1965, set of eight. Iconic and charming, the model "121" by Afra & Tobia Scarpa shows once again the Scarpa's typical double trestle structure with the characteristic rounded joint. The straightforward and minimal design is like a cubical volume; the supports, on the other hand, are slender, anatomically shaped surfaces. The seat and back are shaped in plywood and attached by bolts to crosspieces along the center that offer extreme comfort. The back has a cut in the lower part, required due to the presence of a reinforcement that reacts to torsion stress, which is strongest at this point. We can do custom restoration and special reupholstering. Our atelier guarantees the excellence of Italy through the traditional art of craftsmanship. We do offer a dedicated customization service thanks to our team of expert craftsmen and artisans. Contact Modernab Gallery...
