MIM Roma, set of six dining chairs, wood, orange velour upholstery, Italy, 1960s

This set of six dining chairs for MIM Roma shows a well balanced design. With its angular tapered legs the frame gets a special look especially sideways. The seats as well as the backrest are upholstered in an orange velour upholstery that combines beautifully with the dark wood.

Please note that we have a matching dining table in our collection.

MIM Roma (Mobili Italiani Moderni) was founded in 1958 by Ennio Fazioli, who was at that time just 28 years old. When the first showroom opened, the display was designed by Ico Parisi who worked for the manufacturer until 1960. At the time that MIM was founded, spirits were high: scientific and technological discoveries would catalyse growth and modernity. Fazioli believed that everybody deserved beautiful, modern design. MIM moved towards a certain lightness and rationalisation that borrowed from Nordic and American aesthetics yet with a true Italian elegance. The resulting collection from MIM is therefore a combination of 'refined linearity with a sober opulence: a typically Italian matching of simplicity with the exceptional'.

Ico Parisi (1916-1996) is one of the pioneers who helped shape postwar Italian design. Parisi is now known for fluent, curved and delicate simplified modern design. In Italy, reform took place not in a new institute such as the Bauhaus, but in the sophisticated upperclass private spaces. Here paths cross of Ponti, Campigli, Melotti and also Ico and his wiife Luisa. At the age of twenty Parisi graduates from the Istituto Tecnico G. Castellini as an Industrial Head Technician. According to Parisi himself, his first design dates from this date. He also starts to work as a painter and photographer before he had to work as a soldier in the war. His life really starts after the war when he meets his wife Luisa Aiani. From here onwards his designs are recognized and exhibited and he starts to collaborate with MIM Roma in 1958 and Stildomus in 1959. In the 1970s Parisi designs many architectural projects under the concept of a new way of living.
