About

Vintage 1969 Archizoom "Mies" chair by Poltronova in excellent condition.
Lounge chair and ottoman titled "Mies" designed in 1969 by Archizoom Associati: Andrea Branzi, Gilberto Corretti, Paolo Deganello, Massimo Morozzi, Dario Bartolini, Lucia Bartolini. An important example of Radical Design. Chrome-plated steel, rubber and cowhide. The rubber seating is made of Pirelli rubber, which turns back to its original position after sitting on it. Appearing as there is no space to sit on at all at first sight due to the triangular clear cut geometry of the chair. Thus, designed as a tribute to Mies van der Rohe, the functional part seems to be unclear until someone decides to sit on it, lending the chair the status of object as well as furniture. It comes with an ottoman which has three lightbulbs underneath.
