ico Magistretti for Cassina Set of Six Early '905' Armchairs in Cognac Leather
Vico Magistretti for Cassina, set of six '905' armchairs, black lacquered wood and cognac leather, Italy, 1964. Designed by Vico Magistretti and produced by Cassina, this set of chairs features the original elements of this early '905' model. The elegance of the frame with cylindrical legs and curved arm-rests is striking. The design stands out due the self-supporting seat, made from one piece of saddle leather, curved and fixed into the frame. The decorative stitching in the seat and the leather belt that lends support to the back, enhance this beautiful design. The chairs are in original condition and feature an all-over patina. Both the leather and the wood shows signs of age and use, which only attribute to this wonderful set.
