Gae Aulenti, Set of 6 "Orsay" Chairs for Knoll International, 1970s

About the Item

Nice set of 6 "Orsay" chairs designed by Gae Aulenti produced by Knoll International in Italy. Circa 1970s. New upholstery. Dark brown lacquered metal feet. Good vintage condition of the feet. (minor lack of paint and scratches) The "Orsay" chair was named after Musée d' Orsay in France, which Gae Aulenti created in the same period. Like much of her work, this chair is known for its curved, lacquered metal frame. Though not part of her iconic lounge collection with Knoll, which consisted primarily of living room furniture, it shares many of the attributes and influences she is recognized for. This set would make an eye-catching addition to any interior, such as a living room, family room, screening room, or office. It also perfectly fits in a hospitality or corporate location like a boutique hotel lobby, cocktail bar, members club, or luxury boutique loft. Original pieces from the 1970s newly re-upholstered with a high quality wool Bouclé fabric from the French house NOBILIS and new foams. We can particularly appreciate the work and savoir-faire of our team of upholsterers respecting the original design, using the right proportions and lines as Gae Aulenti designed it. This set of chairs was at first upholstered of white/grey fabric, we can provide photos before and during restoration on demand. Additional photos and videos available on demand. Worldwide Express deliveries by air freight are available on all our items.
