Description

Exceptional and extremely rare Le Mura lounge chair by Mario Bellini for Cassina, Italy, 1970s. We have two pieces available which also can be attached to each other to use as a sofa. It is similar to the Camaleonda by Mario Bellini, but the Le Mura was in production for a limited time and much less produced and therefore very rare. And where the Camaleonda is not so comfortable in use the Le Mura is very comfortable. Le Mura stands for ‘the walls’ and this name and the design of the sofa resemble the large stones that were used to build the ancient Roman walls and roads, like the via Appia in Rome. The pieces still have their original Mohair velvet fabric which is of the highest Italian quality and durability. The two chairs can be attached to each other with chrome metal buckles that hook into each other. All two sections still remain in exceptionally good and beautiful condition with few to no signs of age, use and wear. The shape is still like it has to be and the fabric is also in very good and clean condition. In the pictures there appears to be some fading but that is caused by the hint of the velvet fabric and the camera lights. The two colors of stripes in the fabric are creme beige grey and the other chocolate brown. From some angles the color of the fabric seems almost grey / taupe and from other angles light brown / camel. All two sections are the same color, although in the photo’s is does not always seem like that. This is a real eye-catcher and centerpiece in any interior and we are very proud to have it in our collection. About Mario Bellini: Bellini (1935-) was born in Milan and still is one of Italys most renowned and rewarded designers. His oeuvre is wide and various. It spans architecture, urban planning, furniture design and Industrial Design. His designs are well known worldwide and highly wanted.
