Artona Africa chair in walnut wood and black leather, Afra and Tobia Scarpa

About the Item

Afra & Tobia Scarpa for Maxalto, Artona 'Africa chair', black leather, walnut, ebony, and brass, Italy, the 1970s In this model, the pattern of thicknesses of the veneers achieves the most significant impact; beyond the seat level, in curved plywood covered with leather, a back takes form with great sculptural force. The perfect correspondence of the curved lines is achieved by making this part out of a single piece of wood, divided and finished in two specular components. The drawing on the back of this set is exquisite and highlights the natural form of the walnut wood. These round black organic lines are accompanied by sophisticated brass details. In original condition. The price is per piece. We have 8 chairs available.
