Gianni Moscatelli plywood dining chairs Italy 1959





A fabulous set of 4 plywood dining chairs model Bivalve 940 designed by Gianni Moscatelli made in Italy ca 1959. These beautiful organic plywood dining chairs have an unusual but beautiful shape. As plywood furniture was rather new and experimental in the 50s a lot of designers and manufacturers were experimenting the possibilities of shapes in plywood. I guess in this design you can see how far they could go. As the entire chair is made of rather thin plywood and has a super dynamic shape. 2 Shells together compose the seating part where on the sides the legs are attached with beautiful custom-made screws. These chairs come directly from the designer’s home and therefor have an amazing provenance as well. The chairs are in black painted finish which has an original patina with some crackle and losses but still preserve their original look. The chairs are very nice in a set of 4 and we have one extra single chair available in another listing. Chairs are in a set of 4 and look amazing around a round dining table for example. Due to their modern shape and neutral finish these can easily match a modern home or interior. Priced and sold in a set of 4.
