Description This very rare pair of armchairs was designed by Antonio Scoccimarro, son of the important architect Cesare, for Adrasteia in the late 1950s. The model is called "Arcadia". Adrasteia was a small manufacturer that was active for a short period of time, between the mid 1950s and the early 1960s, which makes them a highly collectible piece.
The armchairs have been newly upholstered in ivory velvet, while the bent wood structure with brass details remains in its untouched original conditions, with patina on brass purposefully left unpolished.
Large in size and extremely comfortable. Published.
Styles / Movements Mid Century, Modern
