Description Armchair model Pallone designed and made by Cesare Augusto Nava, Desio Italy, in the early 1970s. The armchair is sold with “Certificate of Authenticity”.
The armchair is the 1 of only two prototypes ever made by the designer Cesare Augusto Nava. Its particular realization is an iconic product that defines the 1970s. With phsicadelic colors this particular armchair seems to evoke particular hallucinogenic allusions. The armchair has a circular structure in multilayer wood covered in colored Formica. The ant has a blue vortex pattern with a purple background. Its brass feet, also semi-spherical in shape, are perfectly in line with the particular line of the seat. The particular seat is created by two cylindrical shaped cushions covered in cotton fabric. The seat is easily adjustable through two brass knobs that raise or lower the backrest.
We can therefore say that this chair is a particular and iconic Italian product that fully depicts the 1970s, given its great particularity and eccentricity are perfect for collectors of design and houses with great aesthetic taste. A real unique piece for your living room.
