Alessandro Mendini Proust Armchair in Blue, Grey and Yellow Fabric Cappellini

US$13,890per item

About

One of the most acclaimed design pieces in the world, the Proust armchair by Alessandro Mendini was launched in 1978, when it was used to furnish the Palazzo dei Diamanti, in Ferrara during an exhibition entitled 'œIncontriravvicinati di architettura'(Close encounters of architecture). Shortly thereafter, the piece's postmodern appeal captured the attention of connoisseurs and design insiders on an international scale. This new edition of the iconic armchair has the traditional hand carved and hand painted wood frame with a fixed cover made of multi-color fabric that echoes the frame decor. The Proust armchair is produced in two different multi-color palettes: light blue, grey and yellow or black, green and red. Structure: hand carved and hand painted massive beech, padding: multi-density polyurethane foam Multi-color fabric matching the colors of the structure: PR_2: black, green, red.
