Gigi Radice Velvet Chair for Minotti $6,250>

Italian architect and designer Gigi Radice never achieved the fame he deserved, though his groundbreaking partnership with renowned Italian furniture company Minotti in the 1950s – 1960s was a huge success at the time. Radice worked side by side with the founder, Alberto Minotti, to design not only the company buildings, but the family home, and penultimately the products. The furniture that he worked on for Minotti - including sets that today command high prices on auction sites - reveal him to be a technically accomplished and creative soul who had an outside-the-box sensibility similar to that of Gio Ponti, the great maestro of 20th-century Italian design. This sculptural lounge chair was designed by Radice and produced by Minotti in the 1950s. It showcases a geometric tapered back with iron legs and polished brass sabots. Meticulously restored and upholstered in luxurious Dedar Milano cotton velvet.
