Yes, you read it right – this is a seat from the 1940s, specifically the Carlo Mollino Ardea armchair.

Mollino came up with this design back in 1944, but to be honest it looks a good 20 years later – almost space age. A twist on the wing chair, the Ardea offers up a black painted wood frame, polyurethane foam seating and a removable cover in your choice of cloth. Not to mention some serious designer cool.

If you want one, expect to pay just over £2,000 for this Zanotta reissue.
