RARE PAIR OF SIROCCO CHAIRS
BY ARNE NORELL Sold
Swedish designer Arne Norell (1917-1971) started his own workshop in 1954 in the town of Solna, Sweden. Thereafter he moved to Småland and established his own company Möbel AB Arne Norell.
He was known for his versatile use of wood, leather, fabric, and metal in furniture characterized by comfort and ease. Arne Norell was to a great extent inspired by Danish design. One example of this influence is the safari chair ‘Sirocco’. Another of his designs is the lounge chair ‘Ari’.
Our pair of ‘sirocco’s’, designed in 1964, is an early rosewood edition with the rare and much sought after olive green leather. Good condition, nice patina.
