The iconic 925 Scarpa lounge chair is a strikingly elegant lounge chair. Easily recognized by its firm and robust wooden frame and the striking contrast it creates to the lightness of the leather covered seat and backrest.
The anatomical design of the leather-covered seat, combined with the natural elasticity of the cantilevered backrest, creates a lounge chair that is equally comfortable and strikingly elegant.
The 925 Scarpa lounge chair was designed alongside the charming 121 Scarpa dining chair from 1965.
The two chairs are a prime example of Afra and Tobia Scarpa’s work and share the same double trestle structure with characteristic rounded joints. Both designs are now a part of the Karakter collection.
Afra & Tobia Scarpa
Afra Bianchin (1937-2011) and Tobia Scarpa (1935-) first met at the IUAV, University of Venice, where they graduated as architects in 1957. This marked the beginning of a partnership, marriage, and a career with an impressive impact on Italian design in the 1970s and 1980s. The Scarpa’s influenced the golden years of design and production ‘Made in Italy’ with their modernist aesthetic and constant focus on the technical and aesthetic possibilities of materials in their designs. Their work consists of architecture, everyday household items, art glass, and exclusive home interior design pieces.
