Paulistano Armchair


The Paulistano Armchair was designed in 1957 by Paulo Mendes da Rocha and is a 'must-have' lounge chair, winner of the Pritzker Prize (2006).
Very comfortable, the Paulistano lounge chair is a classic piece in timeless chic design. It is included in the famous permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art of New York (MoMA).
The constructivist concept of the structure, made up from a single bended steel bar and a leather cover, give this armchair an aesthetic lightness and an incomparable comfort.
Paulistano shows that the purity and the elegance of its lines are timeless, with an exceptional comfort. 
Paulo Mendes da Rocha wanted the appearance of the structure to change, to evolve with time, according to the modernist precepts. According to him, the charm of a piece of furniture resides in its "un-permanent" character as the leather will patinate over the years.
The Paulistano Armchair measures 82 x 70 x 38 sh cm
