Gae Aulenti Chairs by Elam Model Lira Set of Four, Published

$1,124.02per item

About the Item

Modern set of four chairs designed by Gae Aulenti for the ELAM manufacture in the 1970s. The chairs are the very rare LIRA model. The chair set is made with a curved chrome metal frame that makes the seat energetic bright. Its modern curved lines give the chair modernity and futurism. The seat and back are made of light brown leather. On the sides of the leather backrest we see stitched the logo of the ELAM manufacture designer's trademark and pattern. They are also published in several catalogs. The leather seat , as noted below it, is anchored to the frame with steel strings. The chairs are ideal for modern living rooms or dining rooms with a clean, minimalist taste. At the feet we find rubber grommets to keep the seat from slipping.
