Werther Toffoloni & Piero Palange for Germa, pair of 'Hoop' lounge chairs, model 'G23', lacquered wood, canvas, Italy, 1972
Made in 1972, these Hoop armchairs are designed by Italian duo Werther Toffoloni & Piero Palange for Germa. The pronounced geometry of the frame contributes to the unit's sculptural silhouette. The construction consists of bent cylindrical-shaped wooden elements that have been coated in a vibrant red lacquer, a color that is rather uncommon for this type of chair and further enhances the set's rarity. The seat and backrest of this piece are upholstered in an off-white canvas material that is fastened to the structure through lacing situated beneath the seat. Another defining feature is the high, egg-shaped backrest, which provides ample support for a comfortable seated posture. Additionally, the armrests extend beyond the backrest, adding to the unique visual allure of the piece's design. Defined by simplicity, clarity and absence of ornamentation, this piece of furniture is exemplary of architectural minimalism.
