Marzio Cecchi ‘Balestra’ Lounge chair, Italy 1968

Fully original Marzio Cecchi ‘Balestra’ lounge chair for studio Most, Italy 1968. A true and rare icon with the original foam and suede in very good condition. Probably the only original on the market: the frame consists out of two pieces: 1. the upper part starting at the top of the chair and runs all the way down to the bottom - back of the frame where it stops. And 2. the lower part starting at the front of the chair and seat which runs in a nice bow to the bottom at the back of the frame where it makes a corner to the floor where it connects with the longer part. See detail, a small seam is visible. The frame is as well stamped with the matching numbers. The chair is super comfortable due to the cantilevered seat and spring construction which makes the chair swing a bit. In very good original condition with a nice patina on the soft suede.
