Massimo Vignelli for Knoll Intl 'Handkerchief' Stacking Chairs, Signed, 20 Avail

About the Item

This classic Post-Modern design by Massimo and Lella Vignelli for Knoll International is called the 'Handkerchief' stacking chair, labelled underneath with early production (original) year labels. We had around 60 chairs but have sold many and now have approximately 20 left, in black powder coated over steel bases and black fiberglass seats, available individually or in sets. Great for stacking when you need more open space in the room and easy to unstack when you have guests. Perfect for those who require versatility in their space. The black-on-black colorway is the most popular and in-demand and perfectly encapsulates the Post-Modern movement of the 1980s and early 1990's. This set produced in 1993 and labelled underneath the seats. Ideal collector's examples or consider using in a boutique hotel or restaurant / cafe. These stacking Handkerchief chairs by Massimo and Lella Vignelli would work great in a Contemporary, Post-Modern, Mid-Century Modern, Scandanavian Modern or Danish Modern home, office or penthouse apartment. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. Consider using as side chairs, dining, cafe or breakfast table chairs, bedside chairs, fireside chairs, dressing or changing room chairs, hallway chairs, entryway or mudroom chairs, nursing or reading chairs, conference room chairs, office or desk guest chairs, lobby lounge chairs or occasional chairs ideal in virtually any setting.
