Pair of lounge chairs designed in 1960s by Angel I. Pazmino and manufactured by Muebles de Estilo in Ecuador.
A stunning and rare pair of vintage safari chairs in solid rosewood and leather.
Ecuadorian designer Angel Pazmino has created a sculptural masterpiece in these armchairs.
The bold design is perfectly executed in exotic timber with a vibrant grain and constructed with pegs to allow the chair to flat pack (hence Safari suited).
This model shows the rare arm-rests with the volute detail, which makes it stand out of the fairly common Safari chairs on the market.
Thick hide leather and buckle straps give this highly memorable offering a distinctly South American flavor.
They are in very good vintage condition, the frames are all clean, sturdy and sound, with only some minor surface wear here and there commensurate with age.
Kurt Ostervig, Klint or Don Shoemaker have designed similar pieces around that time.
Dimensions: 26″ x 26″ x 30″ / seat height is 13″.
