Pair of Upholstered Rattan and Wood Chairs for ULUV, Czechoslovakia ca 1960s

$ 10,450
  • Description
    The Czech company “ULUV Krásná jizba” produced some of the most beautiful Eastern European pieces of the mid-century era, both in terms of aesthetics and quality.

    In the emerging design landscape of 1960s Czechoslovakia, Úľuv emerged as a prominent manufacturer, crafting pieces that blended functionality with artistic flair. Even in their repertoire, these chairs are standout creations with their sculptural structures, epitomizing the innovative spirit of mid-century Eastern European furniture design. The transition into the 1960s saw a fascinating fusion of traditional craftsmanship and modern design principles, with these chairs standing as testaments to this harmonious blend. Crafted from wood and rattan, these chairs exhibit a mastery of woodworking and design; they showcase an interesting visual unity that is both striking and functional. The square rattan backs add an element of texture and lightness, contributing to the overall visual balance of the chairs.

    The use of rattan, a material traditionally associated with folk craftsmanship, reflects Úľuv's commitment to preserving cultural roots while embracing (then) contemporary design trends as well. Another defining feature of these chairs are the upholstered seat cushions, offering a comfortable juxtaposition to the angular and tactile qualities of the wooden and rattan elements. The light upholstery provides a soft counterpoint to the solid wood structure, ensuring that the chairs are not only visually appealing but also inviting and comfortable.

    The clean lines, innovative use of materials, and commitment to quality above all make these chairs timeless design pieces, bridging the past and the present in a way that transcends fleeting design trends.
