Scarpa 121 Chair
Afra & Tobias Scarpa, 1965

Scarpa 121 Chair
Scarpa 121 Chair

The Scarpa 121 chair was developed in 1965 by designer couple Afra and Tobias Scarpa from a sketch by Tobia's father, Venetian architect-designer Carlo Scarpa. 

It's a dining chair with simple lines, whose design blends equally well with classic and modern interiors. 

It features a sturdy wooden frame that creates a striking contrast with the lightness of the seat. The seat is made of anatomically shaped plywood covered with fine leather, held together by bolted crosspieces.

The Scarpa 925 armchair is the lounge version.

Afra & Tobias Scarpa

Afra Bianchin (1937-2011) and Tobia Scarpa (1935-) first met at IUAV, the University of Venice, where they graduated as architects in 1957. It was the beginning of a partnership, marriage and career that would have an impressive impact on Italian design in the 1970s and 1980s.

The Scarpas influenced the golden age of "Made in Italy" design and production with their modernist aesthetic and constant attention to the technical and aesthetic possibilities of materials in their creations. Their work encompasses architecture, everyday household items, art glass and exclusive interior design pieces.
