Vittorio Introini Calypso lounge chair Saporiti Italy 1979





Fantastic original Vittorio Introini Calypso Lounge Chair, a timeless masterpiece designed in 1979 and manufactured by Saporiti in Italy. The chair features a waterfall-like leather seat with a round leather backrest. On the seat there is an extra visually draped padded cushion which provides extra comfort. The round backrest has playful diagonal stitching on the front. Seen from the front the chair has a minimalistic appearance and because of the waterfall-like frame it’s transparent too. The frame is supported by cylindrical slides made of steel.


The chair is in extremely good and untouched condition.
