Highly rare and beautiful set of 6 so called ‘Ariston’ dining chairs designed by Augusto Bozzi and manufactured by Saporiti, Italy 1954. These chairs have a pressed plywood seat which is finished with teak veneer at the front and back, the black painted metal wire frame supports the seats. The structure provides stability and also a nice contrast with the deep coloured plywood seats. The seats are only connected to the base with 2 screws which are decoratively worked away in the seat, but these details also support the aesthetics of the design. This style was popular in the 1950s. Bozzi was one of the designers who gained credits for his designs during that period, putting Saporiti on the map and becoming one of the big players in furniture production in Italy. The chairs seat very comfortable and have a very nice dynamic look and the open back rest creates a light and floating appearance. Hard to find set of 6 matching dining chairs by Bozzi. Marked with their original Saporiti label at the bottom. In wonderful original condition with normal age-related patina but nothing mention worthy.
Priced and sold in a set of 6 chairs.
Teak plywood, metal
