by Paulo Mendes da Rocha, 1957
Paulistano lounge chair designed by Paulo Mendes da Rocha in 1957 for the Athletic Club of São Paulo is without a doubt a timeless design classic. The elegant structure full of lightness made up from a single bended steel bar is encased with leather or cotton canvas cover. A Paulistano chair with its gentle swinging movement feels of an incomparable comfort. Edited in small series, this iconic chair has been included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art of New York (MoMA).
