Gae Aulenti model "Stringa" daybed by Poltronova Production, fabric upholstery, chromed metal, Italy, 1965

The lovely design of this chromed daybed is characteristic for the work of Gae Aulenti. The tubular frame has strong proportions, and the connected tubes on the back make a nice detail. The upholstery in sea blue fabric shows signs of age and use. Due to the distance between the floor and bottom of the seat, the piece has a floating appearance.

Gae Aulenti (1927-2012) was an Italian architect. She is well-known for several large-scale museum projects, including the Musée d'Orsay in Paris and Palazzo Grassi in Venice. Aulenti was at the forefront of Italian post-war design. Her design was meant to make connections with both history and future of Italy. The postmodern movement that Aulenti belonged to refused to design in the objective language of the modernists. This Avant Garde Postmodern design movement was the beginning of new type of Italian art, architecture and design.
