These beautiful chairs by Eero Aarnio for Mobel Italia are a rare find. The armchairs come from the ‘Silver Series Executive’ that Aarnio designed for Mobel Italia in the year 1965. 

Feature armchairs by Eero Aarnio for Mobel  Italia in the 1970’s.  Aarnio’s designs were an important aspect of 1960s popular culture and are often seen in science-fiction films. Most of his designs have been copied to the death so are readily recognizable by almost anybody (such as the Ball chair). The exception however is this design. This belongs to the Silver Collection and the production rights were bought by Mobel Italia in the 70’s in Italy. Mobel Italia apparently went bust soon after releasing the design so these pieces are very hard to find in Europe.

Both chairs are reupholstered in Kvadrat Mosaic 2 by Febric in a beautiful cobalt blue color. One slightly more padded than the other one. Both provide a comfortable seating. One still has the Mobel Italia marking. The frames are made of chromed aluminum. The chairs are in beautiful vintage condition. 

Sizes are: 70 cm height x 77 cm width, seat height 40 cm
