Unique and very large set of 15 Vittorio Dassi dining chairs manufactured in Italy 1950. These chairs feature beautifully shaped teak frames and the seats have been re-upholstered in a soft cream velvet fabric. The standout feature of these chairs is their unique design, with an almost floating backrest supported by four connection points. The seamless construction of the whole chair gives the impression of a single piece of wood, creating a fluid and elegant look. With their tapered legs, these chairs have a light and airy appearance, adding to their overall charm. The teak material enhances their natural beauty, making them a focal point in any dining space.
Italian designer Vittorio Dassi’s elegant and sculptural mid-century modern furniture is a hidden gem for collectors. While less widely known than some of his contemporaries, Dassi’s work is characterised by clean lines, angular forms, and impeccable symmetry. Dassi’s preferred material was wood, and he expertly utilised rosewood, mahogany, walnut, and other species in his coveted desks, wall units, and seating. His designs often incorporated decorative elements such as glass inlays and hand-carved geometric cutouts, adding unique touches to his pieces. With a career that began in the 1940s at his family’s furniture company, Dassi Mobili Moderni, in Lissone, Italy, Vittorio Dassi quickly established himself as a talented designer. His furniture showcased a blend of Art Deco motifs and the forward-looking spirit of mid-century modernism. Notably, Dassi collaborated with renowned architect and designer Gio Ponti, most notably on the furnishings for the Hotel Royal in Naples. Ponti’s architectural genius and Dassi’s furniture designs came together harmoniously, creating a cohesive and stylish environment. Today, Dassi Mobili Moderni S.R.L. is still in operation in Lissone.
