Vico Magistretti for Cassina, pair of ‘Carimate’ lounge chairs, beech, bouclé, Italy, designed circa 1960
The ‘Carimate’ lounge chair is one of Vico Magistretti’s most famous chairs. Originally, the chair had a red color and was designed for the ‘Carimate Golf Club’, a clubhouse that Magistretti designed with Guido Veneziani. The chair was in production for a long time and by four different manufacturers. Since Magistretti was very confident about the success of this model, he requested a patent for the construction and the joints in 1963. Due to the architectural, open frame the ‘Carimate’ chair has a strong expression. The angular frame has two curved armrests that add a dynamic appeal. Where the frame meets the seat, Magistretti added a distinct detail to the frame which gets a little wider at this point. The frame is a blond color, which fits beautifully with the light upholstery.
Please note that the chairs have recently been restored and reupholstered in boucle by our in-house atelier.
