Description

Paulistano Armchair in Leather Designed by Paulo Mendes da Rocha, produced by Objekto Purchased from Design Within Reach Chair has been lightly used for less than a year. Cover is an amazingly thick and supple vegetable-tanned full-grain leather. Base has some minor scuffs, but are barely visible due to the powder-coated surface. Currently being sold for $1995, or $2389 (including tax + shipping from DWR) The work of Brazilian designer Paulo Mendes da Rocha reached international recognition when he was awarded the 2006 Pritzker Architecture Prize. That same year, we introduced his Paulistano Armchair (1957) – a classic that had never before been available in the United States. This chair was originally designed for the Paulistano Athletic Club in São Paulo, Brazil. The frame, a continuous 17-foot-long piece of solid steel, is welded in a single spot. This deceptively simple structure is then wrapped in almost an entire hide of leather that will gain depth and luster as it ages. Exceptionally comfortable, the Paulistano flexes slightly, and the sling can be adjusted up or down the frame for upright or relaxed sitting positions. The stainless steel frame is hand-machine polished and may exhibit markings consistent with hand craftsmanship. Made in France.
