Pair of "Ansel" Chairs by Ricardo Fasanello


"Anel" armchair chair exhibits a ring shaped back with a section of upholstery for the seat, capturing the mood of the space•age. Produced by the Ricardo Fasanello studio, in Brazil. Born in 1930, Fasanello began designing at a young age. He opened his own studio in the bohemian district of Santa Teresa, which has now become a true design laboratory. His career as a designer was marked by uninterrupted and frenetic production, seeking perfection of form while exploring a range of materials that included steel, fiberglass, leather and especially resin. He was ahead of his time with design and technical solutions, blending Brazilian aesthetics with cool sophistication. Anel Chairs are a hallmark of Fasanello's design portfolio.
