About

Italy, Singer & Sons 1955. Walnut. Price for the pair of armchairs. 23 wide, 28" tall and 28" deep. Seat height 16". Professionally restored in our dedicated commercial workshop with the wood enriched with oil and completed with professional grade satin oils to the top of the wood, these chairs will hold their natural look of walnut for decades and look even better as they age with patina over time. Flawless joinery, sculpted, subtle rounding and graduation of every component. These have not been purchased separately, they were originally purchased together and are a set and exactly identical. No stain used. No polyurethanes or other plastic like coatings. Brand new foam and cushions using Knoll Textiles, blue with welt cording that contours to the seat. These chairs look immaculate and express the walnut beautifully. Remnant of label to underside of one example. During this period Singer & Sons produced the iconic designs of Carlo Di Carli, Gio Ponti and Bertha Schafer for the US market.

About the Designer

Carlo De Carli

A modern Renaissance man, Italian designer Carlo de Carli wove his personal philosophy into his furniture creations. He believed that furniture should suit human movement and the surrounding environment, and each piece was made not only with an eye to form but also for everyday practicality. In today’s interiors, vintage de Carli furniture captures the extraordinary essence of Italian mid-century modernism.

Carlo de Carli was born in Milan in 1910. He studied at the Polytechnic University of Milan and developed an interest in design, architecture, writing and philosophy. After graduating in 1934, he worked under revered Italian architect and designer Gio Ponti. Shortly afterward, de Carli opened a studio with furniture maker Renato Angeli. In 1940, he began a relationship with the Milan Triennial design and art museum, where he eventually joined the board of directors.

Most of de Carli's furniture and architectural works came to fruition between the 1940s and 1970s. His architectural projects included the Church of Saint Ildefonso and the Via dei Giardini 7 building in Milan. However, de Carli is best known for his chair and table designs.

What sets de Carli’s chairs and other seating apart from those of other designers is that they are made to be lived in. As a result, his comfortable, functional and inviting designs earned the attention of leading Italian furniture companies like Cassina, Singer & Sons, Tecno and GUBI, and he played a significant role in 20th-century Italian furniture design.

In 1954, de Carli was awarded the Compasso d’Oro for his Cassina Model 683 chair. In 1957, he also won a Grand Prix at the Milan Triennial exhibition for a chair he designed for Tecno. Still committed to his academic pursuits, de Carli served as dean of the architecture faculty at the Polytechnic University of Milan from 1963 to 1968. He continued teaching until 1986 and continued writing until his death in 1999. His most important writings were published in a book titled Architettura, Spazio Primario.
