Carlo Hauner and Martin Eisler for Forma, lounge chair, iron and green velvet fabric, Brazil, 1950s
Elegant and modern armchair by Brazilian designer duo Hauner & Eisler. The thin, elegant frame is made in black painted iron. Due the diagonal connection and lines of the frame, these lounge chairs get a delicate appearance. The armrest runs smoothly over into the seating. The seat itself reclines backwards giving these chairs a playful dynamic appearance. The green velvet has recently been upholstered and is in very good condition.
