Looks a lot like Joaquim Tenreiro’s Cadeira 3 Pés

Lovely chair! I hope it’s as comfortable as it is beautiful!

Brazilian designer Joaquim Tenreiro. Search on google images.

how much does this chair weigh? I would guess around 130 lb
Patrovio Baligno on 16 May 2012 at 2:15 pm #
It’s more likely to be around 50 pounds

You’re probably closer than my exagerated guess but still, that piece is not something you want to move around. How about it Bellboy, what’s this piece weigh?

Lounge chairs are not meant to be moved around very often.

sorry but Joaquim Tenreiro did it better 50 years ago. Not original, looks heavy and not comfortable.

Beautiful piece. There’s a very comforting, warm tone about it. Equal compliments of rustic and sleek refinement.

While I do see the similarity to the Tenreiro piece, this iteration is more appealing, (in my opinion), and just looks a bit more finished. The hue and curvature of the wood give it a very dramatic and sensual presence.

The chair was one of 12 designs that were part of the 12X12 exhibit that took place at Wanted Design. The pieces are being auctioned off to benefit Brooklyn Woods. http://www.12x12nyc.com
