New version of the classic RM58 armchair designed in 1958 by the Polish designer Roman Modzelewski but here in fabric and padded foam for even more comfort. The armchair has been slightly widened by 3cm compared to the original RM58 classic version.
This contemporary version exists in several colors.
For the anecdote, a photo of the chair arrived in the hands of Le Corbusier in 1961, he wanted to obtain the license but the Polish authorities at the time blocked the sale. Probably because the seat also tells the story of socialist Poland, which did not allow the manufacture of chairs in fiberglass, a material reserved for military use at the time.
