The Ro armchairs by Zilio A&C have been chosen for the renovated hall of the Cafè Klenze of the Alte Pinakothek in Munich, one of the most prestigious ancient art museums in the world, located in the district of Maxvorstadt. The chairs provided by the company have been 65, all in oak stained beech with dark leather Ehrlich Classic Royal seat. Designed by Tomoko Azumi, this proposal was particularly appreciated by the Sunder-Plassmann Architekten Studio, which dealt with the restoration project of the entire ground floor of the museum, which involved not only the cafeteria but also the foyer, the educational spaces and the exhibition halls.
Originally designed by Leo von Klenze, author of some of the most important nineteenth-century architecture of the Bavarian capital, the Alte Pinakothek is a wonderful example of the German neoclassical style. A restyling that is particularly attentive to the history of the building has made it possible to transform the Café Klenze into a brighter and more modern environment, without altering its identity. In this context, the Zilio A&C armchairs have found a perfect location, thanks to their essential design of classical inspiration.
