A cult and colorful armchair signed by the hand of Paulo Mendes da Rocha in its version adapted for outdoor use. Very comfortable, the Paulistano is a design classic with a timeless elegance. Made of spring steel, the chair is coated with an extremely durable epoxy paint for intensive outdoor use, and covered with a 3i treated cotton canvas (rot-proof, stain-proof and waterproof) available in a wide choice of colors.
On a terrace, by the pool or under a pergola, this armchair will adapt for a long time to all situations.
Designed in 1957 by da Rocha, the Paulistano armchair was part, for many years, of the living rooms of the Athletic Club of São Paulo. The constructivist concept of the structure, made up from a single bended steel bar, and its cover, made up of leather or cotton, procure to this armchair an esthetical lightness and an incomparable comfort.
Edited in small series within the last years, the Paulistano armchair emerges from the past to show that the purity and the elegance of its lines are timeless: a masterpiece.
The Paulistano lounge chair has been included in the famous permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art of New York (MoMA)
