Pair of Italian Wood and Leather Folding 'Tripolina' Lounge Chairs, Joseph Fendy

$7,900per set

About

A rare set of the 'Tripolina' folding chair designed by Joseph B. Fenby. The Tripolina chair was made from prior to WWII by the firm of Vigano` in Tripoli, Libya, for the expatriate Italian market as a camping chair of great stability in the sand and made from local wood and camel or cow hide. This first folding chair from the late 19th century, 1881, inspired a lot of designers, of which the best known example is the 'Butterfly chair' by Antonio Bonet, Juan Kurchan and Jorge Ferrari Hardoy. The frame of this pair of chairs are in completely original condition and have a beautiful patina. Stamped: Brevettato on frames. The leather seats have been replaced. References: Campaign furniture, Folding and portable chairs.
