  • Description
    The first edition pair of Marenco leather lounge chairs by Arflex, originating from the 1970s, epitomize the ingenuity of Mario Marenco's design.

    Debuting in 1970, these lounge chairs showcase a modular construction, comprising individual seat, back, and arm cushions. Their linear, modular design exudes an aura of refined sophistication, seamlessly harmonizing with their soft, rounded contours.

    Crafted under the discerning eye of Mario Marenco, a polymath celebrated as a television author, comedic writer, and entertainment luminary, these chairs encapsulate an era marked by consummate elegance and cultural vibrancy. Marenco's creative vision, imbued with wit, charm, and surreal humor, reflects the spirit of an era characterized by innovation and artistic expression.

    Designed with a modular framework, the chairs' structure ingeniously conceals underlying metal supports within the cushioning, resulting in a visually soft and deconstructed appearance. This design philosophy mirrors the zeitgeist of an epoch defined by a fusion of innovation and artistic sensibility.

    Within Marenco's diverse portfolio, these lounge chairs, alongside other seminal works, represent the pinnacle of a bygone era, now enshrined in the annals of design history. These artifacts serve as conduits for transmitting the essence of an era characterized by elegance, conviviality, and a hint of whimsical fantasy—a timeless testament to Marenco's enduring legacy.

    Presented in their original leather upholstery, meticulously preserved to retain the essence of their era, the lounge chairs embody the design ethos of Arflex, a revered brand synonymous with Italian design excellence. Their dimensions, meticulously calibrated to optimize comfort and visual allure, underscore their status as iconic pieces within the realm of modernist furnishings.
