Very collectable Carimate chairs, by the Architect Vico Magistretti, the master of modern Italian design, held in Museums such as the De Padova. They are known as the Carimate chair (or model #892, armless version) as in 1959 the design was used as part of the furnishings for a golf club in Carimate, Lombardy. In 1962 Cassina began producing the chairs to the wider market. This design was first imported into Britain by Terence Conran around 1962, available initially by mail order, before being sold through his ground breaking store ‘Habitat’. This chairs are made in solid beech wood with original woven rush seats and red staining. The chair are in great vintage condition sturdy in structure and free from any woodworm. The rush seating shows little use for age. All chairs are solid and all joints are tight and intact. There are some cosmetic signs of age related wear including some light scuff marks to the legs but mainly wear and discolouration to the finish.
Dimensions: Each chair measures H 75 cm; W 50 cm; D 44 cm; seat high cm 44
