Melchiorre Bega Pair of Lounge Chairs and Ottoman in Floral Upholstery

$9,700per set

About

Melchiorre Bega, pair of lounge chairs with ottoman, fabric, wood, Italy, circa 1935 This pair of padded armchairs comes with an ottoman. The set features a low, wide seat that rests on four strong legs in a dark colored wood. With the slightly tilted backrest and high, curved armrests the chair invites the sitter to relax. Melchiorre Bega (1898-1976) was trained as an architect and later became a designer. He is known for his well-detailed 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 that was founded by his father Vittorio around 1900. 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. Measurements of the ottoman: W 57 x D 42 x H 36 cm Please note that the floral fabric of the chairs shows strong signs of wear and use. We advise reupholstery which our in-house restoration and upholstery atelier can take care of for you. We kindly ask you to contact our design experts.
