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.
With the intention of being authentic and to get a great patina over the years, we use full grain leathers with no surface modification. The leather may exhibit little scares or natural markings consistent with natural tanning.
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.
The Paulistano lounge chair has been included in the famous permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art of New York (MoMA)
