"It is truly a wonderful gift, this careful philosophical reconstruction that Zanotta realized in the Gilda armchair. Its constructive quality seems to exceed all possibilities that the same Carlo Mollino practiced in 1953. While working on the furnishings of “Casa Pomella”, he designed two twin chairs with reclining backrests, made with a solid, shaped and sculpted wooden structure. Two padded elements on the seat and backrest, both shaped around linguistic and ergonomic choices, and with brass fixings and adjustments. Today the “extra” detail, made possible primarily by the desire to fully highlight the master’s lesson, is the rear arm/leg made majestically of a single piece. The new design gave additional, sculptural beauty and prestige to the piece.
Gilda, the armchair with sculptural beauty.” #archilovers #design #interiordesign #zanotta #gilda #armchair #poltrona #home #casa #arredamento #furniture
