Borsani, Osvaldo (1911-1985)
Borsani, Osvaldo – A very rare side chair designed by, presumably, Osvaldo Borsani. A totally new and modern design was the philosophy of Borsani, who started off in Milano with ‘Tecno’, a company he and his brother started at the beginning of the fifties. The chair is made of walnut veneer and has a black patinated metal frame that makes a cross connection and binds the legs. It has brass feet, and brass joints in the seat. Similar chairs have been made by other designers, but none as refined as this one by Borsani.
Height: 86 cms. Width: 49 cms. Depth: 53 cms. Condition: Fine, wear consistent with its age and use, it has one small veneer loss in the seat.
