This rare pair of ‘Perla’ armchairs was designed by Giulia Veronesi and produced by ISA Bergamo, Italy in the early 1950s. Its sensual curves and the elegantly tapered legs give the chair a sculptural and modern feel. These striking armchairs have been fully reconditioned and newly upholstered in a sumptuous clover green Loro Piana velvet. The Perla model is one of the iconic chair designs of the Italian Modern era.
Literature reference: Domus No. 274, October 1952, page 4.
Additional note: The designer of the Perla model has been credited as G. Veronesi in the ISA advertisement in Domus. Previously, Guglielmo Veronesi was assumed to be the full name. However recent research has indicated it was in fact Giulia Veronesi who designed the Perla chair and sofa.
