Afra and Tobia Scarpa Set of Twelve Monk Chairs Canvas

About

Afra & Tobia Scarpa for Molteni, Monk set of 12 dining chairs, grey and beige canvas and walnut, Italy, 1974. Stunning set of Monk Chairs by Afra & Tobia Scarpa in two tones of canvas upholstery. Interesting is the 'flat' shape of this chair where the designer has chosen to place the legs cross-angled. This decision gives the chair the appearance of being light-weight, whilst in fact they are very well-constructed and heavy. Another interesting feature is use of nails on the top of each leg, which are executed in a black dark color. All in all a very interesting and high-quality chair. Simplified and solid design by Italian award winning designers couple Afra & Tobia Scarpa. Afra (1937-2011) & Tobia (1935-) Scarpa both studied on the Venice Institute of Architecture. Tobia first worked for the Italian glass manufacturer Venini. From 1960 on the couple opened their own design office. Their work includes architecture and everyday items like furniture and clothing. Tobia & Afra designed for numerous major Italian and international companies like Flos, Gavina, B&B Italia, Cassina, Knoll International and many interior projects for numerous companies worldwide. The canvas upholstery is in good condition but shows signs of age and use. Please note that price is per item, not for the whole set.
