Outdoor Paulistano Chair

The timeless classic Paulistano chair, designed in 1957 by Paulo Mendes da Rocha (2000 Mies van der Rohe Prize and 2006 Pritzker Prize honoree) gains a much anticipated outdoor version.

Originally part of the Athletic Club of São Paulo, one of Rocha’s seminal brutalist projects, and comprised of a single bent piece of steel, the Paulistano’s special outdoor frame is made of carbon steel with a high durability black and, for the very first time, white paint.

Complete with a slipcover made of 100% cotton canvas weaved in Paris (toile de Vosges) with special waterproof, rot-proof and stain-proof treatment, the outdoor Paulistano is bound to complement any outdoor setting, from pool side to terrace to mountain estate, with its classic and extremely comfortable design.

Along with its original indoor version, part of the MoMA NY collection, the Paulistano chair is readily available at ESPASSO.
