About

Rare and beautiful pair of lounge chairs by italian sculptor and artist Franz T Sartori for Flexform, Milan Italy, circa 1965. Sartori is best known for his organic form sculptors but he also had a brief foray into designing furniture which also reflected his sculptural aesthetic.

And very high quality De Ploeg 'Musco' mohair fabric. A very similar revised edition of these chairs was published in the September 1967 edition of the famous italian design journal 'rivista dell arredamento'., please see images 9 and 10. Flexform was a company always at the forefront of modern italian design producing avant garde classics such as Joe Colombo's iconic 'tube' chair.
