Paulistano chair - Whisky leather cover

$2,014.10 $2,014.10


Designed in 1957 by Paulo Mendes da Rocha, Winner of the Pritzker Architecture Prize 2006, the Paulistano chair was originally designed for The Athletic Club of São Paulo.

Now a design classic, the Paulistano chair has joined the ranks of iconic design classics from Alvar Aalto, Mies van der Rohe and is part of the famous permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art of New York (MoMA).

KEY FEATURESExceptionally comfortable, the frame of the Paulistano chair is made of a continuous 17-foot single bended steel bar (shaped under 200 lbs of hydraulic pressure over 24 hours) and then welded in a single spot. This deceptively simple structure is then wrapped in almost an entire hide of leather, with no surface modification, that will gain depth and luster as it ages. 

NOTE TO CUSTOMERSThe frame is hand-machine polished and may exhibit markings consistent with hand craftsmanship. 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. No cover is exactly the same.

The Paulistano chair has been featured in the SUNDAY TIMES, ELLE DECORATION, HOMES & ANTIQUES, LIVING ETC, The TELEGRAPH and many more.
