Italian Set of Ten Dining Chairs in Black Saddle Leather


Borghi Cantù, set of ten dining chairs, saddle leather, stained wood, Italy, 1970s

This ensemble of ten dining chairs embodies an austere aesthetic, yet the meticulous choice of materials and exceptional craftsmanship elevate them beyond mere simple chairs. The design character of the chairs echoes the aesthetic language prevalent in the 1970s, with iconic designs like Afra and Tobia Scarpa's 'Dialogo' and Gae Aulenti's 'Orsay' chair playing significant roles in shaping its character. The present model features two wooden angular frame to which the round, countered seat is attached. The gentle curves of the saddle leather create a splendid juxtaposition with the cubic framework. The visual appeal of this design is achieved by virtue of the thought-through interplay of shapes and proportions.

Please note that the chairs are in good condition with some visible signs of age and use. For further details, we encourage you to reach out to our team of design specialists.
