Martingala Chair by Marco Zanuso for Arflex, Italy, circa 1950

About

Stunning early edition martingala chair by Marco Zanuso, manufactured by Arflex, Italy, circa 1950. The chair is newly upholstered in high quality grey wool and has a brass base. It has the original Arflex manufacture label underneath. The chair would fit perfectly in any Mid-Century Modern interior. In excellent condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina. Marco Zanuso was born in Milano (Italy) May 14, 1916. He was one of a group of Italian designers from Milan shaping the international idea of "Good Design" in the postwar years. Trained in architecture at the Politecnico di Milano university, he opened his own design office in 1945. From the beginning of his career, at Domus where he served as the editor from 1947–1949 and at Casabella where he was editor from 1952–1956, he helped to establish the theories and ideals of the energetic Modern Design movement. As a professor of architecture, design and town planning at the Politecnico from the late 1940s until the 1980s, and as one of the founding members of the ADI in the 1950s, he also had a distinct influence over the next design generation coming out of Italy.
