Italian Set of Ten Dining Chairs by Sapporo 1970s
Sapporo for Mobil Girgi, set of 10 dining chairs, Italian walnut and cognac leather, Italy, 1970s.
Set of ten sculptural chairs that feature wonderful backrests, consisting of two vertical slats distanced from each other. At the bottom and top these are connected, which results in its sculptural appearance. The front legs are straight and build up from two flat pieces. The color of the Italian walnut frame is deep and warm which accompanies the cognac leather seats very well. The cognac leather is in good, patinated condition, and shows some signs of age and use. This design reminds of Scarpa's Africa chairs and the designs of Pierre Cardin.
