Beautiful and very rare set of two “Padaro” lounge chairs, designed by Paul Tuttle for Strässle International, Switzerland, circa 1960.

These luxurious chairs are beautifully crafted with a very nice eye for shape and symmetry. Their chrome-plated metal legs have an elegant curve. The seat and back are well secured with black leather straps, left visible as a part of the design. The cushions have their original, fine quality black leather upholstery. This set would add a real touch of luxury to any interior.

In good original condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a very nice patina.

Paul Tuttle, an internationally recognized designer best known for his modern, elegant furniture, died in his Santa Barbara home on Aug. 2 after a long illness. He was 84.
Tuttle’s body of work included custom and manufactured furniture, as well as architectural and interior projects in Santa Barbara, his home since 1956.
One of his signature pieces was the 1964 “Z” chair, which combined wood and metal in a streamlined Z form, and illustrated his affinity for combining materials such as wood, metal and glass into sleek, sculpted designs.
