Mario Bellini Set of Six 'Lira E Liuto' Dining Chairs in Leather
Mario Bellini for Cassina, set of six ‘Lira e Liuto’ dining chairs, cognac leather, Italy, 1989
This set of six ‘Lira e Liuto’ dining chairs has beautiful cognac colored leather that is stitched to the seats of these chairs. The four legs and the rounded seat are fully covered with leather. This overall cognac look unifies all parts of the seat with each other. A circle is stitched to the backrest that has a decorative aspect. The ‘Lira e Liuto’ seems to be developed out of the iconic ‘CAB’ chair that Bellini designed in 1977.
Mario Bellini (1935) is an internationally renowned Italian architect and designer. Born in Milan, Bellini earned his PhD in architecture at the Polytechnic University of Milan in 1959. After his graduation, Bellini started working as an architect, and as a consultant for the Italian electronics company Olivetti. Besides architecture and electronics, Bellini also dedicated his career to automotive and furniture design. He has designed numerous items for Vitra, Artemide, Kartell, Cassina and more. The iconic 1977 Cab Chair for Cassina is one of Bellini's most prominent designs. The appreciation of his outstanding work has been made clear with eight Compasso d'Oro design awards. Over 20 items of his works are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
