Seller: russ_stuff (905) 100%, Location: Bridport, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 182368514065 C&B ITALIA 'Amanta' chairs; one pair in unrestored, but good, condition see the obituary (at bottom) of the co-founder of B&B Italia and note that it only existed as 'C&B Italia' between 1966 (when it was founded) and 1973. Therefore this pair of original edition chairs are up to half a century old! Very rare and special to find a pair from this early period of original manufacture, unrestored but still intact. In my opinion they are in the best material; black leather. Some superficial damage to the injection moulded, white, 'forms' (the only actual 'dent' is pictured). I have not attempted to improve them beyond feeding the leather, which I do every now and again anyway, and wiped down the structure. No rips or tears in the leather - some splits / wear to the fabric on the seat bases which, obviously, are not seen and do not affect their use. This 'ageing' is a sign that they haven't been restored and, in my opinion should be left as it is (can send pics to any seriously interested parties). Will personally deliver to addresses up to, and including, London - from my home in Dorset - if bought at the 'Buy-it-Now' price. If I accept an offer then delivery is not included (but can be discussed beforehand). Am happy to deal with any courier you choose to appoint if they sell further afield. Many thanks for looking................have a shop's worth of stock to list eventually, in the same vein, but these chairs are actually my own! "SELECTED ECLECTIC" NO LONGER EXISTS IN BRICKS AND MORTAR - please ignore any info on Facebook or my website - they are awaiting updating "27 January 2014 News: Piero Ambrogio Busnelli, founder of Italian furniture brand B&B Italia, has died aged 87. One of the great pioneers of Italian contemporary design, Busnelli founded B&B Italia in 1973, after previously co-founding C&B Italia with Cesare Cassina. From the outset Busnelli worked with leading designers to create a series of iconic furniture products, including three Compasso d'Oro Award winners: Mario Bellini's 1972 Le Bambole armchair; Studio Kairos' 1983 Sisamo wardrobe system; and Antonio Citterio's 1987 Sity sofa system. In 1989 B&B Italia was the recipient of the first ever Compasso d'Oro Award to be given to a company. The award was given for "the constant work of integration carried out in order to combine the values of scientific and technological research with those necessary to the functionality and expressiveness of its products." The company is based in Novedrate in Italy's Como province, in a building designed by architects Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano in 1972. In 2011, Busnelli's sons Giorgio and Emanuele brought the company back under family ownership after a majority stake was sold to private equity firm Opera in 2002." Condition: GOOD retro condition. See pics and description for details. These chairs were made between 1966 and 1973 and are unrestored. They are fine as they are but not 'showroom perfect' - only later re-issues will be 'as new'., Style: Italian, Product Type: Armchairs, Original/Reproduction: Original, Age: Post-1950, Material: Fiberlite, Brand: B&B Italia
