Scarpa 925

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.

"Reading a poem, falling in love or noticing the poetry within an object opens up your heart and makes you feel as if you have a positive right to exist. "

- TOBIA SCARPA

A POET OF DESIGN

In the biographical film Tobia Scarpa: L’anima segreta delle cose (The secret soul of things), Scarpa says that reading a poem, falling in love or noticing the poetry within an object opens up your heart and makes you feel as if you have a positive right to exist.

This sensibility is encapsulated in his designs: materiality, honesty, knowledge, philosophy. Materials have a calling of their own, he believes, a vocation he facilitated making furniture in solid walnut or elm and leather or carved from one block of Carrara marble, like the Biagio lamp, more sculpture than design.
