Description Elegant pair of armchairs by BBPR studio from the 1950s. The pair of armchairs have been refreshed in a warm, soft Italian sheepskin. Its frame is made of black painted iron. In the feet we find rubber tips to keep the armchair firmly in place.
The pair of armchairs has a simple and clean line typical of BBPR's design. The peculiarity of the chairs is its double cushion in the seat and its hexagonal shaped back.
The armchairs are ideal for mountain chalets or for those who love the chic style of modernist design.
The 'Elettra' lounge chair won the Gold Medal prize for design, the 'compasso d'oro', at the 1954 Triennale exhibition in Milan and was a big hit featuring on the cover pages of both the esteemed Italian design journals of the period 'Domus' and 'RIVISTA DELL' ARREDAMENTO'
