Early Mezzadro Stools by Achille Castiglioni for Zanotta


Item Description

Set of 2 red Mezzadro stools designed by A. Castiglioni for Zanotta. In the hands of the Castiglioni Brothers, the Mezzadro stool for Zanotta transforms a simple tractor seat into an iconic object, altering the history of design and the Made in Italy label, while giving tribute to Italy’s agricultural prowess. Made from just four simple components, the metallic spring chair is first and foremost, a clear message of freedom in defining the domestic environment. These are 2 very early examples, marked underneath the base. Priced individually.
