The Tulu chair was designed by the Japanese designer Kazuhide Takahama for Simon International in 1966. The Tulu is one of the very first models that paved the way for the use of chrome-plated steel rod. The steel rod makes it possible to produce softly curved, extremely rounded structures. The back and seat upholstery is attached with zippers and completely removable. The dark blue Alcantara fabric is great, it is the Italian version of Ultrasuede. It feels like natural suede, but it is resistant to stains and discoloration; it can be washed in a washing machine. These elegant stackable chairs are in very good all original condition. They are an early production of Simon International and marked with a silver foil label inside the seat. This set was bought by the original owners in 1970 together with a Sarpi table designed by Carlo Scarpa for Simon Gavina. The table is not included and will be offered separately.
