Lounge Set in Red Velvet and Brass
Lounge set, red velvet, brass, Italy, 1950s.
This set is an iconic example of Italian design from the fifties. Organic and sculptural, the two-seat sofa and two matching lounge chairs with ottomans is anything but minimalistic. Equipped with the original stiletto brass feet which are narrow conically tapered and therefore rest on a small end only, what makes this set seem to defy the laws of gravity and balance. Beautifully curved yet sharp rounded edges. The back forms a beautiful curve which is replicated into the armrests.
