Pair of rattan armchairs "Prorok" by Borek Sipek, 1988. The generous structure of these expertly woven rattan chairs recall both the animal and the botanical; the wings at each armrest nod to the swan while the curling red and black cane look as if it sprouts from a flowering garden. Made of natural, black and red cane with solid ebonized wooden front legs that spare no detail: subtle tapering, carved ring and white painted points, these dynamic Sipek armchairs are like a conversation between traditional and modern sentiment.

Priced per piece. Two available.
