An Eileen Gray Bibendum Chair
An iconic piece of 20th century design and one of the finest designs to emerge from the Bauhaus.
Originally dating to 1926, this edition is around 20 years of age and is attributed to Classicon.
Classicon only started engraving their chairs in 2005 so there are no manufacturers marks.
Leather upholstery on a chromed steel frame. Beautiful and elegant in design and comfortable and sumptuous in use. The perfect balance of form and function.
Dimensions: 900x 830 x410 /730h mm
Offered in excellent used condition.
A scarce chair and very seldom available for sale particularly in such fine condition.
‘”Bibendum is a one of a kind. Nowhere in the history of design will one find an armchair that compares to this. It is captivatingly harmonious despite its size and unites a majestic impressiveness with charm and esprit like no other leather armchair. Eileen Gray underscored the character of her endearing parlour lion with twinkling irony, she named it after the Michelin man, whose form this armchair calls to mind.”
