Ico Parisi Large Set of Olive Green Dining Chairs for Cassina

About

Twelve armchairs by Ico Parisi for Cassina, beech and leatherette, Italy, 1963. This large set of green conference chairs '814' were are executed to perfection and provide great comfort. These chairs look almost sculpted thanks to the exquisite woodwork of the beech frame. The chairs were originally created for Hotel Lorena in Grosseto. This elegant and strong design of this set of chairs is unparalleled. Ico Parisi (1916-1996) is one of the pioneers who helped shape post-war Italian design. Parisi is now known for fluent, curved and delicate simplified modern design. Although Parisi was experimental and innovative, he was travelled along the path gradually, without sudden ruptures. In Italy, reform took place not in a new institute such as the Bauhaus, but in the sophisticated upper-class private spaces. Here paths cross of Ponti, Campigli, Melotti and also Ico and his wife Luisa. At the age of twenty Parisi graduates from the Istituto Tecnico G. Castellini as an Industrial Head Technician. According to Parisi himself, his first design dates from this date. He also starts to work as a painter and photographer before he has to work as a soldier in the war. His life really starts after the war when he meets his wife Luisa Aiani and when he joins the Broletto show. From here onwards his designs are recognized and exhibited and he starts to collaborate with MIM Roma in 1958 and Stildomus in 1959. In the 1970s Parisi designs many architectural projects under the concept of a new way of living.
