Osvaldo Borsani P32 Lounge chair in Ochre Yellow Velvet, Italy 1956


The elegant P32 with it’s well proportioned seat, supported by delicate metal rod legs has become a true design classic over the years. Designed in 1956 by Osvaldo Borsani and produced by his company Tecno, the P32 armchair has a progressive swivel and return system which automatically brings back the chair to it’s pre-set position. This version has recently been re-upholstered in premium ochre velvet fabric by Jim Thompson.

Note: We have another copy of this chair available that has not yet been upholstered and can be executed in a fabric of choice.
