The legendary dining room chairs by the illustrious Italian designer Augusto Savini for Pozzi from 1965 bear the name "Pamplona". As is often the starting point of the designer with dining room chairs, the back should have the most character, since that is the first thing to look at.
If you squint your eyes, it might become clear why Savini named the chair that way. With a bit of fantasy, we see an abstracted bull's head reflected in the modernist design language applied to these chairs. That image is revealed through the use of the type of connections and of course the shapes.
The "horns" are created by the bentwood armrests that, as it were, extend from the front legs to the back legs. The “eyes” are the round, brushed steel screws that connect the backrest to the frame. The “nose ring” is just above the back of the seat and consists of a bracket made of brushed steel that reinforces the back legs.
Beautifully mitered oak railings run at right angles from the backrest to the back legs, which are reinforced at the bottom with a bracket. A highly stylized shape and at the same time an extremely refined chair is the result. The colorway of this set feels very chic. Its black oak frames are adorned with off-white fabric seating.
These chairs have normal signs of wear given their age. Light superficial scratches on the frame resulting in showing the natural oak underneath and a few light stains on the fabric are part of this. This can and will be restored if needed.
If desired it is possible to reupholster and if so we are looking forward to discussing the possibilities with you.
