Foldable leather chair in the style of Joseph Beverly Fendy
Foldable leather folding chair in the spirit of Joseph Beverly Fenby.
Inspired by the Tripolina chair, made from prior to WWII by the firm of Viganò in Tripoli, Libya, for the expatriate Italian market as a camping chair of great stability in the sand and made from local wood and camel or cow hide. This first folding chair from the late 19th century, 1881, inspired a lot of designers. A great example is the 'Butterfly chair' by Antonio Bonet, Juan Kurchan and Jorge Ferrari Hardoy.
These chairs we offer are completely original and beautiful patinated. The chair is in a used but still strong condition.
