Set of Four “Pamplona” Dining Chairs by Augusto Savini for Pozzi, Italy 1965

Sold Sold
  • Description
    The legendary 1960s dining room chairs by the illustrious Italian designer Augusto Savini for Pozzi bear the name "Pamplona". As is often the starting point of the designer with dining room chairs, the back should have the most character, since that is the first thing to look at. If you squint your eyes, it might become clear why Savini named the chair that way. With a bit of fantasy, we see an abstracted bull's head reflected in the modernist design language applied to these chairs. That image is revealed through the use of the type of connections and of course the shapes. The "horns" are created by the bentwood armrests that, as it were, extend from the front legs to the back legs. The “eyes” are the round, brushed steel screws that connect the backrest to the frame. The “nose ring” is just above the back of the seat and consists of a bracket made of brushed steel that reinforces the back legs. Beautifully mitered walnut railings run at right angles from the backrest to the back legs, which are reinforced at the bottom with a bracket. A highly stylized shape and at the same time an extremely refined chair is the result. In addition, the color scheme of this set is beautiful. Its refined lacquered walnut frame goes into a wonderful combination with the aubergine-colored faux leather. These chairs have normal signs of wear given their age. Light superficial scratches on the frame and a few light scratches on the leather are part of this.
