Tito Agnoli for Molteni Set of Four 'Fiorenza' Dining Chairs in Leather & Walnut

Sale price$3,300.00

Tito Agnoli for Molteni, set of four 'Fiorenza' dining chairs, walnut, leather, Italy, 1968

These chairs are an excellent example of Italian Mid-Century design. The back is slightly curved in the middle, which is not only aesthetically pleasing, but gives the sitter the support it really needs. While the back convinces with its organic appearance, the legs are built in a clear an angular way. Interesting detail is how the concave-shaped seat extends further, while developing in a subtle wing on both sides of the chair. An outstanding piece of furniture that deserves a prominent place in one's dining area.

Tito Agnoli (1931-2012), whose full name is Giovanni Battista Agnoli, is considered one of the most important Italian designers of modern lighting. Agnoli was born in 1931 in Lima, two years after his parents emigrated to Peru in 1929 due to the political situation in Italy where Mussolini's fascistic regime was on the rise. After WWII, Agnoli came to Milan in 1947 and started to take art lessons and enrolled into the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera. The mid-century tendency in the art world, with surrealism and abstract expressionism thriving, didn't suit Agnoli's realism. A year later he began to study engineering and architecture at the Milan Polytechnic. During his career, Agnoli worked as an assistant for Gio Ponti and Carlo De Carli. From the fifties onwards, Tito Agnoli, who was still very young, created a series of ambitious creative design projects for O-Luce, Arflex, Poltrona Frau, Matteo Grassi, etc. He has been nominated for the Compasso d’Oro several times during his career. Nowadays, some of his designs are part of the permanent collection of the MoMA in New York.
