Pair of Original Senior Armchairs by Marco Zanuso, Arflex, Italy

About

Pair of Senior chairs, designed by Marco Zanuso. Italy, Arflex, 1951. An early original pair of lounge chairs 'Senior' newly restored and upholstered in mustard yellow coloured velvet material. Metal frame with brass legs fittings and wooden construction upholstered in floral material (probably dating to the 1950s). Literature: Repertorio del Design Italiano 1950-2000, p. 25, illustrated. Marco Zanuso (Milan, Italy 1916 – 2001) was part of a group of Italian designers from Milan, shaping the international idea of "good design" in the postwar years. Trained in architecture at the Politecnico di Milano university, he opened his own design office in 1945. He was editor at the DOMUS Magazine. As well as being a professor of architecture, design and town planning at the Politecnico from the late 1940s until the 1980s, he was also one of the founding members of the ADI in the 1950s, distinctly influencing the next design generation in Italy. In 1957 Zanuso partnered with German designer Richard Sapper, both working together on many projects thereafter, including for Brionvega and Siemens. Zanuso received gold medals for designs such as the LADY CHAIR, SLEEP-O-MATIC and TRIPOLTRONA. Condition: Great vintage condition with new English velvet upholstery.
