50s Augusto Bozzi lounge chair for Saporiti
Augusto Bozzi (1924–1982) started designing in the late 1940s, with iconic chairs and armchairs, and in 1950, he began a partnership with the Saporiti Italia company, an Italian manufacturer of furniture collections, to manufacture its designs. During the 1950s, Augusto Bozzi and Sergio Saporiti, Saporiti’s founder, worked alongside designers Alberto Rosselli and Giorgio Raimondi to create design objects and furniture with streamlined designs and innovative materials. Augusto Bozzi’s commercial success is, in great part, the result of his partnership with Sergio Saporiti. This strong partnership resulted in designs that combine innovation, discreet simplicity, and lightness. Bozzi’s chair and sofa designs methodically adopt an approach in which thin metal structures are used as support for molded and upholstered seats for chairs, armchairs, and sofas.
This ‘armless’ armchair was designed in the 50s by Augusto Bozzi. Nice fabric in black and white. The chair is in good condition with minor decompositions at the foam of the seat. The seat is made of a bowl of laminated wood with a chequered cover. The lines of the chequered cover and the linear feet come together to a simple and timeless design. Chair is in good condition consistent with age and use.
