Home office designed by Irakli Zaria
Prolific interior designer & decorator Irakli Zaria knows how to walk the visual line between classic & contemporary, evident in his compositions filled with pieces from the past that have persevered into modern aesthetics ― and this mid-century gem by Joe Colombo is just one star of many.
Kicking off his creative career focused in painting and sculpture, Colombo turned to design relatively later in life, making his first foray into the scene in 1953 when tasked with creating a decorative ceiling for a Milan jazz club ― sparking a new passion that led to overtaking his family's factory as an experimental space for cutting edge production. With renewed enthusiasm and an ideal workspace, his design career spurned midcentury legacies that transcended Colombo's practice ― including the Elda Lounge Chair.
Completing Zaria's warmly illuminated office space with welcoming brown leather, the modernist wingback chair features a comfortable, enveloping plastic frame upholstered with thick leather pads ― inviting any user to sink in and stay. The elite leather finishes combined with forward-thinking aesthetics have allowed the piece to continue as a quintessential example of 20th century design, with individual premium pieces only gaining a striking patina along the way.
Mixing the timeless with the cutting-edge, the Elda meshes well with Zaria's distinctly vintage-meets-modern aesthetic, which has featured other midcentury icons like the distinct DS600 leather sofa and more.
