"Rigitulle" Ply Perforated Sheet Metal Armchairs by René Malaval - France 1950s

Very rare pair of René Malaval armchairs for the Biarritz Casino. France 1950's.
These chairs are made of a welded steel base on which the perforated rigitulle structure sits. That structure is made of a backrest and an elegant wavy seat with rolled endings. The pieces used to hang the seat on the bases are positioned differently from one seat to the other. Hence the seat height and pitch is slightly different as can be seen on pictures.
These chairs have been sanded and thermo painted using RAL9010 off-white paint.
One base has a slightly tilted leg.
