The man, the legend, the chair. Brazilian architect Paulo Mendes da Rocha, winner of the 2006 Pritzker Prize, is famous for good reason–probably because of the amazing Paulistano Chair he created in 1957 for the Athletic Club of São Paulo. Constructed out of a single bended steel bar and almost an entire leather hide, the Paulistano is a champion of constructivist design principles. It accomplishes a sense of weightlessness but is also really, really comfortable. This chair will definitely be a winner in your home.
