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 and simplistic form is comprised of two key materials, thick solid walnut legs with a tan leather seat and backrest. Refined, functional and comfortable, our set of four 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, showing lots of marks and patina, with some minor sagging to the seats.
