Mid-Century Chromed Steel Executive Armchairs by Eero Aarnio for Mobel Italia



A Classic design from one of the masters of Mid-Century Modernism, Eero Aarnio. This Finnish designer is responsible for some of the most iconic modern furniture design and he created this beautiful executive chair for Mobel Italia in 1968. During the 1970s Aarnio embraced materials used by early Bauhaus designers like chromed steel and leather. These designs once again pushed the boundaries of modern design and helped define the more glamorous edge of the era. This model that features an elegant square chrome frame with beautiful white leather upholstery is a very nice example. The labelled! Set of two armchairs – which are in an excellent original vintage condition – is likely part of the ‘Silver Series’ that Aarnio designed for Mobel Italia.
