Afra & Tobia Scarpa, set of six dining chairs, walnut, red leather, Italy, 1970s
With their rectangular frames and the angular backrest this set of dining chairs by Afra & Tobia Scrapa shows resemblance to two other iconic designs: the 'Monk' chairs (1974) and the 'Dialogo' chairs (1970s). This set of six dining chairs with red leather rests on two frames with the characteristic connections like seen at the 'Monk' chairs. The walnut frame shows the black metal joints like a decorative aspect. The two vertical flat legs are connected on top and on the bottom with two circular pieces. The red saddle leather created a comfortable seat and backrest and also shows admirable rich patina.
