Zanuso Mohair 'Baby' Lounge Chairs, Early Wood Frames, Brass Legs, Arflex,1951

About

Rare pair of elegant 1951 'Baby' lounge chairs by Marco Zanuso for 'Arflex', Italy. Early sought after examples with the artisan handcrafted wood seating frames. Zanuso's 'baby' chairs were designed to complement his 'lady' and 'senior' chairs and are finished in 100% mohair upholstery with brass legs. The chairs retain their original early period 'Arflex' manufacturer's metal labels. Both chairs have been fully renovated, including new rubber seat support webbing by the original manufacturer 'Pirelli' and new expensive original specification latex foam throughout. The chairs are finished in beautiful high quality DE PLOEG 'Musco' 100% mohair fabric. The original brass legs have been hand polished and exhibit some surface marks, scratches commensurate with originality age and use. We have also chosen not to repaint the original grey enameled steel leg support frame under the seat in order to maintain some visual signs of originality and authenticity. We have kept a photographic record of the inhouse restoration process. These chairs are very early examples easily identified by their artisan crafted wood frames. The early wood frame fabrication was very quickly superceded by the far more cost effective industrial welded, pressed sheet steel frames. These production details are confirmed on page 8 of Daniele Baron's tome on the history of Arflex entitled 'Arflex 1951-1981' which was published in 1981. A rare opportunity to acquire very early production examples of this seldiom seen Zanuso model. Literature: Original period Arflex catalog and advertisement; PLEASE SEE IMAGES 2 & 16.
