Stunning set of 4 dining chairs „Golem SD51“ designed by Vico Magistretti for Poggi in 1969. The unique frame of the chairs are made of black high lacquered wood and the seats have a black high quality leather upholstery. These chairs are very elegant in its graceful lines and at the same time they embody a linear simplicity.
The element that serves as the backrest is lightly profiled to adjust to the seated position. It is one of the very few cases in which the reference to the past is not through the recovery of anonymous types and models, as Magistretti was used to doing. He revisited this formal typology with the collection of Koube chairs designed for the Japanese brand Aidec.

Vico Magistretti was born in Milan (1920 – 2006). He took a degree in Architecture and now, in his studio, he carries out chiefly town architecture projects, industrial design and furniture. He has been member of several juries and took part to many exhibitions, both in Italy and abroad. His products have been manufactured by Artemide, Cassina, Knoll International and others.
Fifteen of his creations are exposed in the Collection of Modern Art in New York.
