Item Description

Gabriella folding lounge chair with a steel frame, seat, and back upholstered in black Naugahyde. This iconic chair was designed by the Italian designer Gio Ponti and released in a limited edition of 100 pieces by Paolo Pallucco in 1991. This chair has the very low number 002/100, marked with label. The Gabriella chair was originally designed by Gio Ponti during the 1970s. This chair is a modern interpretation of historical folding chairs that were praised for their mobility and functionality, which was revived and glamorized in the 1960s-1970s design sphere in Europe. This design displays playfulness with a stylish modern silhouette and an unexpected proportion with its relatively tall back and shallow seating, yet it still manages to provide comfort.
Literature: Gio Ponti, The Complete Work, 1923-1978, Ponti, pg. 245.
Gio Ponti was an icon of the modernist movement: the Italian designer, architect, artist and publisher contributed significantly to the worlds of architecture and design with his extensive work in Fine furniture and ceramics, education, office and residential buildings, and everything in between.
