As originals are difficult to come by and often there have been issues with condition, we arranged to have this model newly made. Working with local craftsman in Italy using traditional methods to exact specifications & quality materials, each armchair has a quality solid wooden frame. The frame sits on 4 removable handmade solid polished brass legs that screw to the frame. Each leg is in solid brass and has the top portion made as a plate, with four holes to screw to the sofa giving great stability to the piece. All the components meet fire regulations. Packing is offered free of charge. This chair would be pack with bubble wrap, foam and cardboard, and sealed with a layer of stretch wrap for safe transport. The legs can be unscrewed from the frame if necessary and packed in a box. Additional dimensions: Height of the seat from the floor is 43.5 cm. Height of the arm rest is 53.5 cm. We also offer in our Contemporary Collection a bespoke Marco Zanuso inspired `Lady` armchair, that was originally the complementary piece designed to go alongside Marco Zanuso`s `Senior` chair. The `Lady` chair is slightly shorter in height & more reclined, with similar organic curves to the design & great comfort.
