Mario Marenco Marius lounge chairs Arflex Italy 1970





Cool pair of Marius & Marius Lounge Chairs, designed by Mario Marenco and manufactured by Arflex in Italy in 1970. These chairs are true classics, featuring four extremely comfortable foam-filled cushions covered in beautiful leather. These cushions are placed on a sturdy metal frame, which is attached to a plywood base with sleek black plastic feet. The leather has stunning cross-stitching on the cushions. These chairs are in fantastic condition, having a wonderful patina that adds character. Priced and sold in a set of 2.


The MARIUS & MARIUS collection was created with simplicity in mind, offering basic elements like seats and backrests that adapt to various living spaces. Thanks to their compact and linear modular design, the collection’s components, including poufs, armchairs, and sofas, can be arranged in a wide range of configurations to suit your needs.


In 1947 Carlo Barassi, engineer of Pirelli, together with Renato Teani, in the financial dpt. of Pirelli, Pio Reggiani and Aldo Bai, founded the company Ar-flex (“flexible furniture”), which became later arflex. They worked together with a young architect, Marzo Zanuso, and began to experiment the use of foam rubber and elastic tapes for the furniture market.
In history and life of a company, there are events and moments of special meaning, which are awards for merit acknowledged by everybody. Those first memorable moments in the history of arflex coincide with the company’s creation, in modest premises in Milan, in Corso di Porta Vittoria. It was there that the first manufacturing and sales team was formed, but arflex company was presented to the public for the first time only in 1951, at the IX Triennale in Milan, after two years of experimentations. This early contact with a wider audience in the context of an avant-garde artistic event is intensely significant in the company’s history, because this experimental interest, if not separated from commercial purposes, shows the will of creating high technological and esthetical level products, based on deep research and experimentation. The Golden Medal at the IX Triennale assigned to Lady armchair, was above all recognition of arflex manufacturing philosophy.
