Osvaldo Borsani for Tecno P40 Lounge Chair

About

Osvaldo Borsani for Tecno, P40 lounge chair, original brown fabric, metal, Italy, 1955. This lounge chair has been the result of the relentless search for an armchair that facilitated maximum relaxation. This search was in line with other modernist architects of that time who in their turn tried to design the perfect lounge chair. The piece was first presented as being 'A New Armchair' and it was made clear that although this armchair occupied a normal amount of space, it offered all the reclining possibilities of the most comfortable armchairs. The P40 has become the ideological manifesto of Borsani's Tecno program, and still remains the best known, exemplary piece in the Tecno catalogue. Osvaldo Borsani (1911-1985) is known for his modernist designs at Tecno Milano. Before he began Tecno with his twin brother, Osvaldo designed furniture at his fathers cabinetry Atelier Varedo or Arredamento Borsani. Tecno was founded in 1953 by Osvaldo and Fulgenzio Borsani. The core thought on which the company was found on the idea that Dwellings function as the fundament on which the quality of life is built. Although Tecno was led by functionalism, aesthetics have never been unimportant. Technique the tool that led to typological innovation. The office world experience an extreme growth in postwar Italy and it was mainly to this world that Tecno dedicated their innovative design and craftsmanship.
