Description This exceptionally rare pair of armchairs was designed by Franco Albini and produced by the Italian manufacturer Poggi in 1966. The striking design is marked by the square shapes of the seat resting on two rectangular column shaped legs in teak wood. The generous proportions and the soft padding of the armrests, cushions and back make this a very comfortable lounge chair.

The chairs have been fully reconditioned and newly reupholstered. The sand colored bouclé fabric by Larsen creates a beautiful textural effect. The teak wood bases have been carefully restored and refinished.

This model PL34 was initially designed by Albini and his partner Franca Helg for Casa Brion, a private residence in Milan, between 1960 and 1964. Roberto Poggi, the head of high end manufacturing company Poggi, liked the design so much that he asked Albini to take the chair into a small scale production. The chair and matching sofa were produced for a short period of time between 1966 and 1967.
