Melchiorre Bega (1898-1976) born into a family of furniture makers went on to become a leading figure in Italian architecture and design. His vision was seen as radical by many at the time, challenging the traditions of bourgeois design through more stripped back forms than what had come before. You can find Bega’s designs across the globe with design projects across Italy and abroad. In Milan and Bologna alone, Bega designed 40 retail stores, 8 hotels and 41 public buildings.
Originally designed by Melchiorre Bega (1898-1976) for the M. house in Bologna in the 1950s, this pair of armchairs make for a modernist take on the classic wing chair. Their noble stature and winged sides create a regal yet comfortable repose. Recently upholstered by previous owner in a stripped fabric, they have been newly dry-cleaned. In good vintage condition.
