Sale price$550.00

Paco Muñoz for Darro, 'Riaza' chair for children, samara, leather, metal, Spain, 1960s

This robust and resilient low lounge chair, a creation of Paco Muñoz from the 1960s, epitomizes refined design. Resembling a hunting chair, its distinctive aesthetic is achieved through leather loosely secured to the frame with straps, which not only ensure functionality but also enhance its visual appeal. The chair embraces a charming, age-appropriate patina, contributing to its authentic allure.

Originally conceptualized for the Club de Campo Villa de Madrid project, this chair stands as a testament to mid-century design excellence.

Paco Muñoz (1929 - 2009) was a Spanish designer who founded Darro in 1959 as a movement against the recently fallen Franco Regime and to break through the cultural isolation. Founded by Muñoz in 1959, the design company Darro created furniture with a focus on European modernity and to neglect the more traditional, Spanish styles. Being inspired by Italian designers such as Gio Ponti and Scandinavian Modern, the influences of these design aesthetics were clearly visible in Darro's furniture.

Kindly note that the piece is in good, used condition with signs of age and use visible on the leather, including patina. For further details, we encourage you to reach out to our team of design specialists.
