Vittorio Introini Calypso lounge chair Saporiti Italy 1979

About the Item

Fantastic original Vittorio Introini Calypso Lounge Chair, a timeless masterpiece designed in 1979 and manufactured by Saporiti in Italy. The chair features a waterfall-like leather seat with a round leather backrest. On the seat there is an extra visually draped padded cushion which provides extra comfort. The round backrest has playful diagonal stitching on the front. Seen from the front the chair has a minimalistic appearance and because of the waterfall-like frame it’s transparent too. The frame is supported by cylindrical slides made of steel. The chair is in extremely good and untouched condition. Vittorio Introini was an esteemed Italian designer known for his contributions to the field of furniture and interior design. Born on May 22, 1935, in Italy, Introini displayed a passion for creativity from a young age. After completing his formal education in design, Introini embarked on a remarkable career that spanned several decades. He gained recognition for his innovative and elegant designs, which seamlessly blended functionality with aesthetic appeal. Introini's work often showcased a modern and sleek aesthetic, characterised by clean lines and harmonious proportions. He had a keen eye for detail and an ability to create furniture pieces that were not only visually pleasing but also comfortable and practical for everyday use. Throughout his career, Introini collaborated with renowned Italian furniture manufacturers, including Saporiti, where he created iconic pieces such as the Calypso lounge chair. His designs became synonymous with style and sophistication, earning him a prominent place in the world of design.
