Pair of 'Lady' Lounge Chairs by Marco Zanuso Reupholstered in Blue Mohair
Marco Zanuso for Arflex, pair of reupholstered 'Lady' lounge chairs, fabric and metal, Italy, 1950s
An icon of 1950s’ Italian Design, the 'Lady' armchair is appreciated for its contemporary construction, a symbol of innovation supreme, in terms of style, materials, and technology. It was the first that discovered the aesthetic possibilities made available by Pirelli's new foam rubber and elastic products. Working with soft curves and lightness were ideal with the use of this material and were in line with the modern streamlined aesthetic.
The Lady chair was awarded the Gold Medal at the IX Milan Triennale, in 1951.
The pair of armchairs has been fully restored and reupholstered by the experienced craftsmen in our in-house atelier. For the reupholstery we chose for a high quality blue mohair.
