Pair of Restored 'SQUARE' Lounge Chairs by Zanuso for Arflex,Italy, 1962, Signed

About

Lovely pair of restored 'square' lounge chairs designed by Marco Zanuso for Arflex,Italy in 1962. Both chairs are signed wirh original early fabric 'Arflex' manufacturer's labels. The upholstery on these chairs has undergone a thorough ground up restoration, We began by stripping both chairs right back to their bare wood frames , please see last two images. We have completely renewed the upholstery including all new foam and high quality rubber seat and backrest support webbing by the original Italian manufacturer 'Pirelli' . The chairs have been finished in high quality 'Panama' ,100% virgin wool, fabric (color code 06) by the Dutch textile company DE PLOEG . This fabric has a relatively deep pile (nap) rating of 4 and has an elegant authentic mid century quality to its finish. It also has a very high 60,000 Martindale abbrasion rating so is very wear resistant too. We managed to retain the early original fabric 'Arflex' manufacturer's labels from the original worn fabric and have resewn them onto the new fabric. The enameled steel legs have been left completely original to maintain some signs of visual age and period authenticity. The legs are finished with their original elegant hardwood disc feet which have a very nice grain pattern and have been hand polished..
