Important Ottorino Aloisio Wingback Chair, Colli Turin, Italy, 1957

$15,449.21

About

This exceptional wingback chair was designed by Ottorino Aloisio in 1957. The chair was manufactured by the Turin workshop of Pier Luigi Colli. The organically curved lines of the winged back and the armrests create a striking and elegant presence. Ottorino Aloisio made an expressive interpretation of the classical wingback chair, which resulted in a chair that is visually appealing from all sides. The generous proportions and the high back make this a very comfortable armchair. The tapered front legs and curved back legs are in solid walnut wood. The chair retains its original mustard yellow upholstery, which is in reasonably good condition. We highly recommend reupholstering this piece, in order to recondition (parts of) the interior upholstery as well. If desired, we can have it reupholstered in the fabric of your choice by our experienced team of upholsterers. The legs are in good condition with minor wear consistent with age and use. Ottorino Aloisio (1902-1986) was an Italian architect. After his education at the faculty of Architecture in Rome, he became an active proponent of the Italian Movement for Rational Architecture (MIAR) alongside Gino Levi Montalcini and Giuseppe Pagano. Most of his architectural highlights were located in Turin, such as the "Ideal" cinema (1939), the "Gianduja" cinema (1946) and the Sipra-Cetra palazzo (1959). In 1952 he organized the first national conference on Alpine architecture, together with his fellow Turin-based architects Carlo Mollino and Marco Federico Roggero. Aloisio's furniture is marked by an extraordinary attention to craftsmanship and decoration. In the Postwar period the Colli company was the main manufacturer of his furniture. Together they collaborated on the construction, starting in 1938, of the Villa Maggia (furnished together with the Florentine Maurizio Tempestini) and on several interiors of important public buildings in Turin. Colli also manufactured furniture for the architect's own home located on via Susa. Literature: D. Alaimo, Mobili di architetti e progettisti torinesi 1945-1965, Deposito Culturale, Torino 2018, p. 28-30.
