Emanuele Rambaldi, 6 Dining Chairs Leggerissima Model, Figli Di Sanguineti, 1951

About the Item

A very rare set of six dining chairs ''Leggerissima'' (ultralight) model designed by Emanuele Rambaldi and manufactured by Figli di Sanguineti G.B. Made of beech painted in a rosewood essence, this model has a frame which weight just 1,65 kg (for a total of 2,00 kg with its drawn guinea cane seat). This chair was presented at the IX Triennale during the 1951, the same year that Gio Ponti designed the Leggera chair and 7 years before his Superleggera model. Our chairs are professionally restored and newly caned by the artisans of our in-house workshop. The caning process respects all the ancient Chiavari techniques and this fact - due to the structural function of the cane in this kind of chairs - allow to add sturdiness and longevity at a super light frame. Dimensions: 41 x 40 x 89 cm [DxWxH] - Weight: 2,00 kg Year: 1951 Condition: Excellent condition, restored and newly caned Reference: 1. First Sanguineti Catalogue - 1956 2.

    A beautiful and rare set of eight dining chairs ''Campanino 900'' model, manufactured by Fratelli Podestà in the late 1950s. This Chiavarina model stands out for its rational and linear design, elaborated trough a process intended to simplify forms reducing the use of materials. The result is a modern and agile chair which evolves the concept of the classic ''chiavarina'' chair nevertheless maintaining its original construction process. Made of beech painted in a cherrywood essence, this model has a frame which weight just 1,700 kg (for a total of 2,1 kg with its drawn guinea cane seat). Chiavari chairs (Chiavarine) have a 200 years long history and since the beginning of their production they have evolved in several models being always recognisable for a distinctive frame structure which allow them to be one of the lightest chair in the world without compromising their sturdiness and stability. Between the 1930 and 1960s they have been one of the first choice of some of the most renowned Italian architects and interior designers when they had to select a dining chair able to fit their refined taste. Names of the likes as Luigi Caccia Dominioni, Ignazio Gardella, Piero Bottoni, Gio Ponti, Azucena, Gianfranco Frattini have often used Chiavari chairs...
