This rare armchair was produced in Italy in the late 1950s. The design is attributed to Gio Ponti. The geometric shape and the angled placement of the seat make this a distinct, modern design. The tapered legs are in solid beech wood. The armrests are upholstered in a green/grey (verdigris) chenille fabric by Lelièvre Paris. The backrest and seat are upholstered in the same fabric in a white shade.
