Product description

Designed in 1957 by Paulo Mendes da Rocha, the Paulistano armchair was part, for many years, of the living rooms of the Athletic Club of São Paulo. The constructivist concept of the structure, made up from a single bended steel bar, and its cover, made up of leather or cotton, procure to this armchair an esthetical lightness and an incomparable comfort.

Edited in small series within the last years, the Paulistano armchair emerges from the past to show that the purity and the elegance of its lines are timeless: a masterpiece.

The Paulistano lounge chair has been included in the famous permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art of New York (MoMA)

The cotton canvas version is the 1957 original.

Materials: Solid Steel - 100% Cotton canvas
