Roberto Menghi Hall lounge chairs Arflex Italy 1958





Introducing a rare and prestigious pair of “Hall” lounge chairs designed by the renowned Italian designer Roberto Menghi and manufactured by Arflex in Italy in 1958. These iconic chairs hold a special place in the history of Italian design, having been awarded the prestigious Compasso d’Oro in 1959, one of the most esteemed design awards in the world. The “Hall” lounge chairs feature a striking black-painted aluminium frame, providing both strength and a contemporary aesthetic. The clean lines and geometric structure of the frame are characteristic of the mid-century modern design era, reflecting Menghi’s innovative approach to furniture design.


The seats of these chairs have been carefully reupholstered in luxurious camel brown velvet mohair made of alpaca wool, offering a tactile and visual contrast to the sleek metal frame. This high-quality mohair upholstery adds a sense of warmth and comfort to the chairs, ensuring a sumptuous seating experience. The camel brown hue complements a wide range of interior styles, from modern and minimalist to more traditional settings. These lounge chairs are not only visually stunning but also ergonomically designed for maximum comfort. The generous seating area and supportive backrest make them perfect for relaxation, conversation, or simply as a design statement in any room.


Receiving the Compasso d’Oro award in 1959 is a testament to the significance and innovative nature of these chairs. This accolade underscores the exceptional design quality and craftsmanship that went into their creation, solidifying their status as collector’s items and timeless pieces of furniture art.


Whether placed in a stylish living room, a sophisticated office, or a contemporary lounge area, this rare pair of “Hall” lounge chairs by Roberto Menghi will undoubtedly become a focal point, drawing admiration for their design excellence and historical significance. These chairs represent a unique opportunity to own a piece of mid-century Italian design history, celebrated for both its aesthetic beauty and its contribution to the evolution of modern furniture design.
