Alessandro Becchi ‘Toscanella’ chairs for Giovannetti, Italy 1970

This rare set of 'Toscanella' chairs, designed by Alessandro Becchi for Giovannetti, Italy, circa 1970, comes from an old stock, having been used solely in a showroom, which accounts for its exceptionally good condition. What sets this collection apart is the extraordinarily thick straw used in its construction—a premium option at the time that adds to the set's uniqueness, especially considering such material is nearly impossible to find today.

The chairs boast a distinctive sturdy design that facilitates an intriguing conversation between the rustic charm of traditional Ash wood and straw, and their progressive modern design. The unusual bulky tapered legs are immediately eye-catching, while the friendly 'sunset' half-round shaped backrests contribute to a very playful and inviting design aesthetic. These chairs are not only very comfortable but also robust.

Remaining in excellent, fully original condition, this set embodies a perfect blend of traditional craftsmanship and modern design ethos, making it a highly collectible ensemble for enthusiasts of unique furniture design.
