Mario Marenco Walnut Sapporo Dining Chairs for Mobilgirgi, 1970s, Set of 8

About the Item

Set of eight “Sapporo” dining chairs, designed by Mario Marenco and produced by the Italian manufacturer Mobilgirgi in the 1970s. They feature a walnut briar structure and a brown leather seater. Fully restored in Italy.. The highly acclaimed "Sapporo" chair is a timeless classic, crafted with an individual backrest and two vertical slats for unique visual appeal. Influenced by Italian designers Afra & Tobia Scarpa's iconic "Africa" chairs, the exquisite walnut briar construction is complemented by luxe black leather upholstery - beautifully embodying style and elegance in one understated design. Mario Marenco (1993-2019), deeply entrenched in his roles as an internationally renowned architect designer extraordinaire, had never failed to impress when it came to collaboration works he did with esteemed furniture makers such as Poltrona Frau Artemide or Arflex during the period.
