Leather club chair created by architect and designer Zbyněk Hřivnáč in 1981 for the brutalist Hotel Praha in Prague’s Hanspaulka neighbourhood. The hotel provided luxury accommodations in particular for distinguished guests of the Communist Party from the Eastern Bloc. Hotel Praha was demolished in 2014, and its unique interiors full of Czechoslovak design were destroyed. Zbyněk Hřivnáč is known for his collaborations with architects on many different projects, for example the interiors of Prague’s Hotel International, the café Alfa on Wenceslas Square, and several Czech embassies around the world. The chair has a sturdy, wooden frame, which is upholstered in dark-brown leather. The upholstery is ripped in some places. All damage is visible in the photos.
