MID 20TH CENTURY FIBERGLASS MELAINA CHAIRS BY RODOLFO BONETTO
27"W X 25"D X 15"SH X 26.5"H
Bonetto was a Milan native with a passion for ABS plastic and fiberglass, counterbalance, and symmetrical curves. Bonetto designed everything from small interior items, lighting, and furniture to surgical lasers and ski boots. Bonetto has worked with Guzzini, Driade, Luci Italia, and B-line, among others, in the home sector. Bonetto’s Boomerang armchair (1968) is in the permanent collection at the MoMA and his u-shaped magazine holder and monobloc “Melaina” armchair for Driade (1970) remain space-age staples.
