Memphis style chairs by Adam Tihany


Pair of Memphis club chairs by Adam Tihany for 4Mariani Italy c1987.

Fabrication: Solid wood frame, Italian leather upholstery.

Inspiration: Influenced by Ettore Sottass, Adam Tihany (b1948 Transylvania) studied architecture at the Milan Polytechnic and then apprenticed at a number of Milanese design studios during the height of Memphis Design movement in Milan. He relocated to New York and established Tihany Design .com  becoming one of the worlds leading hospitality and hotel designers. Many of his furniture pieces, including these chairs, were manufactured by 4Mariani Como.

4 Mariani brothers Biagio, Tarcisio, Umberto and Emilio founded their furniture brand 4mariani in north of Milan in 1957 with a focus on detailed, high quality leather upholstery pieces. Today they are still producing luxury furniture for the global market.

Design Consigned Collector: These chairs were purchased by the owners for US$9,000 each during the 1990s from award winning Manhattan design store Pace NYC. Very good condition with no wear to the leather.

Design Consigned Styist: If possible, highlight the detailing on the back of these very comfortable and generous armchairs.
