Afra and Tobia Scarpa Walnut Africa Dining Chair for Maxalto, 1976, Set of 6

About the Item

Set of six Africa dining chairs, designed by Afra and Tobia Scarpa and produced by the Italian manufacturer Maxalto in 1976. They feature a clear walnut briar structure and a black and cognac leather seat. Fully restored in Italy. The main protagonist of the Africa Maxalto chairs is wood. It’s a primary material, a strong representative of everyday life. With these design collections, it has become a living material, from the forest right to the home office or the living room. It’s the life of the wood that never stops being fashionable. Afra (1937-2011) & Tobia (1935-) Scarpa both studied at 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 and 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.
