Genuine & rare. The Joker Chair by Oliver Mourge, France for Airbourne. Produced between 1950-1970. Version offered manufactured 'Wright'. Stamped on the base.
These designs are on par with the likes of the original Mies Van der Rohe Barcelona chair, however much more rare. Dimensions- 700 h x 610 w x 750 d mm 410 seat h mm
Design/ origin- French mid century modern design, highly sort-after and very rare in Australia. Cantilevered tensioned chromed steel construction frame, with intricate webbed seat and back-rest. With original cushions, upholstered in thick-hide black over-stitched leather.
Condition- The overall condition is consistent with age. Original leather cushions with wear in areas. Two holes in between the over-stitching, as pictured. However these are hardly noticeable. Marks/ other defects can be seen. Leather conditioned recently.
Chromed steel frame has been professionally polished, however there are signs of corrosion on the legs. New grey webbing has been added, this has been done using the same technique it originally had.
