Reupholstered ‘Alky’ Lounge Chairs in the Style of Giancarlo Piretti

$2,950per item

About

Lounge chairs, fabric, metal, Italy, 1970s These lounge chairs strongly remind of Giancarlo Piretti’s ‘Alky’ lounge chair (1969), yet they feature characteristic differences. Whereas the ‘Alky’ lounge chair consists of one shell, these chairs have a beautiful gap between seat and backrest. Therefore, a more light and airy expression is evoked. Like Piretti, also the designer of this version finished the legs with an aluminum frame to provide a strong line and strengthen the vivid look. Please note that we have a large amount of these chairs available. Please note that the depicted photographs show an example of the way this item can be tailored to specific wishes of our clients. We advise reupholstery before use. This can be done before shipping by our experienced craftsman in our own in-house restoration atelier. With high attention for the original, they make sure every piece retains its value and is ready for the many years to come.
