This extraordinary lounge chair from Cassina impresses with its expansive yet inviting design. The black-gray mottled canvas of the armchair is in good condition. The light wooden frame, probably beech, is very solid and shows few signs of wear. This violoncello lounge chair is much less common than its big brother Viola d`Amore.
The cello was designed in the late 1970s by Piero de Martini, who had been collaborating with Cassina since 1975. The Italian manufacturer is known for exceptional design and signed the exclusive license agreement in 1964 to process the furniture designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand.
