Franco Albini "Fiorenza" armchair $22,000

According the designer's partner Franca Helg, Franco Albini's Fiorenza Armchair for Arflex (1952) is a re-design of an armchair that he first conceived in 1939 and that was made in only a few examples by Italian artisans. The Arflex edition featured variants that mainly concerned the wooden stand and its connection to the padded parts. Due to its specific design, Fiorenza is a very comfortable chair for a correct ergonomic position—for conversation, reading, and resting. The price is per chair and excludes taxes, shipping, and crating.

Born near Milan, Albini (1905-1977) was an Italian architect, urban planner, and furniture designer who apprenticed under architect Gio Ponti and played a key role in formulating the Rationalist movement in Italy in the mid-century.
