Lounge Chair Variations

Distex lounge chair, model 807, 1953

The present lot was commissioned for a private apartment and displays design details from several more well-known Ponti lounge chairs produced subsequent to this model, including the Distex lounge chair, 1953, a lounge chair for Singer & Sons, 1952, and a wingback armchair created for the XI Triennale, 1954. Few examples of this rare chair design are known.
