$ 13,350
  • Description
    This pair of armchairs, created by renowned designer Jean Gillon, is a unique piece that incorporates elegance and quality in its design. Originating in the 1960s and developed for Probel, these armchairs are part of the same set as the iconic sofa signed by Gillon. Together, they form a true work of art that combines the solidity of solid jacaranda wood with the softness of fabric upholstery.

    With an imposing and striking structure, the armchairs somehow fit into the aesthetic of the brutalist style that emerged at the time. The use of solid jacaranda wood gives the pieces a sense of solidity and durability, while the fabric upholstery provides a touch of softness and comfort. One of the most impressive aspects of the armchairs is the quality of the joints in the structure, which are a true spectacle for the eyes. The details are meticulously crafted, giving the pieces a sense of perfection and refinement.

    Jean Gillon, in turn, was an internationally renowned architect and designer. Born in Romania in 1919, he arrived in Brazil in 1956 and became a naturalized Brazilian in 1972. In his career, he worked with various materials, from glass to wood, always seeking to combine simplicity and functionality in his creations. Gillon left a legacy of iconic pieces that, to this day, enchant art and design enthusiasts. His influence can be seen in various creations that emerged later, consolidating him as one of the great names in Brazilian design.

    In summary, this pair of armchairs, together with the sofa signed by Jean Gillon, make up a set of exceptional quality that combines beauty and elegance with solidity and durability. They are true treasures of Brazilian design that deserve to be appreciated and valued.
