SET OF 4 "PENELOPE" CHAIRS BY CHARLES POLLOCK FOR CASTELLI, ITALY 1980S
1982, the designer Charles Pollock created a real design classic: Penelope. The American designer developed for Castelli a revolutionary chair from a technical and formal point of view: a steel-wire sled base supports a seat permeable to air which consists in a steel-wire fence coated with synthetic resin. The elastic effect of the base is stressed by an integral polyurethane tube that acts as a shock-absorber. The armrest coverings are made of the same material providing additional comfort. With Penelope, Pollock translated into reality a new form of seat. That’s why this timeless classic still enjoys fame in today’s design world. Because of it’s form there is also a flexibility in the chair with almost cantilever basics. Very comfortable to sit in. Set of 4 pieces.
