About

Carlo Scarpa for Simon, 'Cornaro' lounge chairs, white fabric, ash, Italy, 1973 This loveseat has a very thick cushion and is upholstered with white fabric. The lounge chair have a relatively thin back and armrests compared to the seat. The frame is made out of a thick round wooden ash basket that holds the cushions together. This love seat is large and comfortable and creates a shell around the sitter. The contrast between the white fabric and the blond wooden frame is both classic, neutral and forms a light contrast. Please note that the fabric of this set shows signs of age and use. We recommend to reupholster this set. We have our own in-house upholstery studio that can provide you with almost unlimited options, from leather, fabric to COM. Please ask one of our advisors for more information on costs and lead time. Carlo Scarpa (1906-1978) is known as a virtuoso of light, a master of detail, and a connoisseur of materials. He is most well-known for his architectural projects, counting 58 in all. Most famous are the Castelvecchio Museum in Verona, the Olivetti showroom in Venice and the Brion Tomb in San Vito d’Altivole. His lush use of decorative aspects and crafted details are still unrivalled. His designs, including this Samo table shows very clear traits of Scarpa’s aesthetic language that holds the middle between Japanese minimalism and organic forms of nature. The table, being designed in 1970, shows strong architectural features in the pillared base. The solid oval marble top is an exquisite example of the use of gravity based techniques as the weight of the oval marble balances perfectly on the pedestal base. Literature: - Gramigna, Giuliana. Repertorio del Design Italiano 1950-2000 per L'Arredamento Domestico. Allemandi: Torino, 2003, p. 211.
