Mystery Tubular Chair: Tucroma Chair by Guido Faleschini?



Vero Cuoio Made in Italy by Mariani
Vero Cuoio means real leather.

Once in a while we receive e-mails with the request to help identify a certain chair. If we like the chair we gladly offer help. The writer believes this to be close to a Tucroma Chair designed by Guido Faleschini.

Hello. I have some chairs that were manufactured by Mariani that I would like to identify. The closest that I have come is that they were designed by Guido since they have almost exactly the same base as the Tucroma chairs, but the application of the leather is different. The leather is Vero Cuoio and the application is more of a Breuer Chair stretched leather. I have included a link to a few pictures I have taken of them for further help. Please let me know if they can be identified as soon as possible as the matter is of the utmost urgency. I thank you in advance for your time and help!

However I have my doubts:
I found this photo on 1stdibs:

And another one here:

The tubular frame of the Tucroma is thicker and the seating is free swinging, more of a cantilever type than that of the mystery chair. Moreover the seating is upholstered rather than flat leather.
Winston Art says:

Noted Italian designer Guido Faleschini created these chairs named “Tucroma” in 1972 and they were produced in Italy by Mariani exclusively for the Pace Collection. In chromed tubular steel.

Unfortunately I can find no web presence of Guido Faleschini, Pace Collection or Mariani. Even the i4Mariani site seems out of order.

Any of our readers?
