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.
Not the one pictured. The leather seat and backrest is structurally sound. Surface wear and patina across the surfaces and edges. Leather shows heavy signs of age.
