Melchiorre Bega Pair of Armchairs, 1935

About

Melchiorre Bega, armchairs and ottoman, Italy, circa 1935 This pair of padded armchairs come with a footrest of a square design. The set features parallelepiped front legs and back legs in solid oak, and the seat and back is covered in a flower fabric. The set has a curvaceous feel and bulky, chunky aesthetic. The pieces are functional, rational and modest. At the same time, they are well finished and warm besides being comfortable. Please note that the fabric of this sofa is of an earlier date, and that the fabric and the foam show signs of age and use. We advise to reupholster. Melchiorre Bega (1898-1976) was trained as an architect and later became a designer. He is known for his well-detailled functionalist, modern designs. Bega rejected the Art Deco style that prevailed during this time. He believed that many small elements would make a perfect whole, his style can therefore be seen as a graceful functionalism. For this reason, Bega worked with specialized craftsmen only. His style developed from the needs of human beings. In his early career he was specialized in the renovation of old buildings. From 1923 onwards, Bega designed and co-managed a production factory. During the beginning of the 1940s Bega was the editor of the famous Domus magazine. Later in life he was the architect of many grand projects such as the Axel Springer Building in Berlin and the Galfa Tower in Milan. Provenance: comes from the Mezzacane residence, also known as Villa Maria, from Rivanazzano in Pavia, the northern part of Italy. Measurements ottoman: W 57 x D 42 x H 36 cm Literature: - "Domus", n. 99, March 1936, cover; - "Domus", n. 137, May 1939, p. 44.
