Paulistano - leather

A must-have lounge chair designed by Paulo Mendes da Rocha, 2006 Pritzker Prize winner. Very comfortable, the Paulistano lounge chair is a timeless chic classic of design. The leather version will get a wondeful patina to become more and more beautifull in time.

Designed in 1957 by Paulo Mendes da Rocha, the Paulistano armchair was part, for many years, of the living rooms of the Athletic Club of São Paulo. The constructivist concept of the structure, made up from a single bended steel bar, and its cover, made up of leather or cotton, procure to this armchair an esthetical lightness and an incomparable comfort.

Edited in small series within the last years (hardly 350 pieces in the world), the Paulistano armchair emerges from the past to show that the purity and the elegance of its lines are timeless: a masterpiece.

The Paulistano lounge chair has been included in the famous permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art of New York (MoMA)
