Formidable husband and wife team Tobia and Afra Bianchin Scarpa created interiors and furniture that embraced the materials of each design and the interplay of technology and aesthetics. They met studying architecture at the University luav di Venezia, graduating in 1957.
The Monk chair is one of many distinctive and highly regarded designs from the pair. Its humble form is comprised of two key materials, solid walnut legs with a black leather seat and backrest. Refined, functional and comfortable, our set of six are in good original condition, the wooden frames and legs show subtle marks and signs of use. The leather seats and backrests are structurally sound with some sagging to the seats, surface wear and patina across the surfaces and edges.
