Paulistano Armchair

f_9195

This is a Brazilian version of a Bauhaus classic by Paulo Mendes da Rocha¹s Paulistano Chair (1957) available through Design Within Reach. This architect won the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2006. The Paulistano flexes slightly and the sling, or slipcover, is available in leather or fabric, the latter being a limited-edition reversible cover (one side is floral, the other is striped) by Rosita Missoni. How incredible is the blocky floral Missoni print! This chair is totally worship worthy.
