100% Made in Italy.
These tables are both part of the project “Équipement intérieur d’une habitation”, on exhibition at the “Salone d’Automne des Artistes Décorateurs” in Paris in 1929. The lines are simple and severe, a source of inspiration for many tables even today. The materials absolutely industrial: steel and glass. The tubular ellipse that forms the base of the table on the left was used by the aeronautical industry at that time. Beyond the beauty of its form, it was probably used also because it represented the symbol of the modern era: the airplane. The table, however, was not introduced in the market: the “ tube d’avion” was not easy to find, and the table itself required a great amount of careful soldering and polishing. But above all the line was considered too futuristic at that time. Left: matt black lacquered elliptical steel tube base, equipped with four adjustable supports. Glass top. Dimension: 225 x 85 h.72 cm
CHAIRS SERIES 7:
100% Made in Italy.
This stacking chair is part of the “Series 7” (1955). “Finally a chair by Jacobsen with four legs and optional arms”, the critics commented, making reference to another Jacobsen’s commercial success, the “Ant Chair,” which had only three legs and no arms. This model, which is also known as the “butterfly chair” for its soft and graceful lines, added a great deal to the modernization of Scandinavian furnishings. This represents a classic example of Jacobsen’s research of forms and materials: a simple structure in tubular steel and a single shell in bent plywood. It is a theme many looked into, especially during those particular years: Eames and Saarinen are two examples. This is considered one of the most successful chairs in the history of design. It is estimated that more than five million copies were made of it, and its success shows no signs of decreasing. Stacking chair with polished chrome tubular steel frame. Shell in bent beech natural wood.
