Set of Eight Mandarin Dining Chairs Designed by Ettore Sottsass for Knoll

About

Knoll Ettore Sottsass Jr. (ITALY, 1917-2007) An architect, industrial designer, philosopher and provocateur, Ettore Sottsass led a revolution in the aesthetics and technology of modern design in the late 20th century. Sottsass was the oldest member of the Memphis Group — a design collective, formed in Milan in 1980, whose irreverent, spirited members included Alessandro Mendini, Michele de Lucchi, Michael Graves, and Shiro Kuramata. All had grown disillusioned by the staid, black-and-brown “corporatized” modernism that had become endemic in the 1970s. Memphis (the name stemmed from the title of a Bob Dylan song) countered with bold, brash, colorful, yet quirkily minimal designs for furniture, glassware, ceramics and metalwork. They mocked high-status by building furniture with inexpensive materials such as plastic laminates, decorated to resemble exotic finishes such as animal skins. Their work was both functional and — as intended — shocking. Set of Eight Mandarin Dining Chairs Designed by Ettore Sottsass for Knoll International 1986 Memphis Group, Milan, Italy. 2 armchairs and 6 side chairs newly upholstered in a rich red fabric. Tubular steel construction with lumbar support in back. Black lacquered steel legs and white arms. Side Chair 18"W x 22"D x 32.5" Seat Height 16.25" Arm Chair 26"W x 23.5"D x 32.5"
