Overview

Important set of concrete chairs and matching table. Likely a prototype for the widely known Loop Chairs. Extremely similar shape but more rounded and slightly roomier and more comfortable. Interesting triangular table as well. Painted green and grey years ago in Italy, by the previous owner. Fantastic set of sculptural concrete furniture. Great vintage condition. Priced as a set of three.

Table Dimensions: 17.75" D x 24.5" W x 17.25" H

Designer Notes
Willy Guhl
b. 1915
Willy Guhl was a Swiss industrial designer, who in the mid-20th century pioneered the application of utilitarian materials, notably concrete, in modern outdoor furniture design, such as his in the design of his iconic Loop Chair. Guhl became renowned for his use of fiber-reinforced concrete, a composite material that combines cement with fibers to enhance strength and durability. His designs, marked by clean lines and functional elegance, reflect a commitment to both beauty and use. Guhl's design and creative use of materials contributed to a redefinition of the aesthetic and functional possibilities of concrete in design during the mid-20th century.
