Questions about this item?

Amat & Knoll
Jorge Pensi (1946-)
Jorge Pensi studied architecture in Buenos Aires. In 1977, he joined Alberto Lievore, Oriol Pibernat and Noberto Chaves in founding the design consultancy Grupo Berenguer. That same year, Pensi acquired Spanish citizenship and established a second design office with Lievore in Barcelona. The Barcelona studio designed exhibition stands for Perobell and the SIDI group in 1984.

During the 1980`s Pensi was prolific in producing new designs for lighting and furniture and became widely known for his fluid, elegant chair designs. His cast-aluminum Toledo chair won numerous prizes in Europe, including the First Award Selection from SIDI, Silver Delta Awards from the Assoziazione del Diesegno Industriale and a Design-Auswal 90 Award from the Stuttgart Design Center. The Orfilia chair, designed for Thonet, and Pensi`s Olympia lamp for B. Lux came to exemplify Spanish design during this decade.

In 1994, Pensi designed the exhibition Salon Internacionale de Diseno para el Habitat. One of Spain`s leading designers today, Pensi has worked internationally as a design consultant and created furniture for a wide range of fine manufacturers. His work for Kron, one of the finest furniture manufacturers in the U.S., includes the dramatic Pensi Lounge Chair and Couch.
A set of vintage Toledo Chairs designed by Jorge Pensi for Amat distributed by Knoll. Made of reinforced thermo-treated cast aluminum, these chairs are ideal for outdoor use but are versatile and comfortable enough to function well indoors. These chairs draw from the tradition and culture of Spain even with the futuristic and cutting edge aesthetic and production techniques, with ribbing in the seats and backrests reminiscent of the armor and swords historically forged in Toledo. Large quantities available, inquire for details.   Also avaible is a matching stainless steel patio table as seen in the last picture.
