Lui5A | design Philippe Bestenheider
Lui5A lounge chair by Philippe Bestenheider – one of the most recognized icons of Fratelli Boffi – revived this year in a new version in natural Vienna wicker, used for its hexagons, this time framed with opaque black borders. This mix made the seat even more geometric and styled look, and proposing a classic chromatic and material combination.
The result is a completely new piece, to mark the continuous evolution of a product that is particularly symbolic of the company. Lui5A takes on a classic piece of furniture – the wooden chair with a typical Vienna wicker seat from the early twentieth century – revisiting it with a futuristic look with the traditional techniques done with fidelity and mastery, but the curved elegant shapes of the original model give way to simplified lines and crystallized shapes that multiply in space. The pentagonal shape thus becomes a unit of measure for the structure and obsessively repeats itself, from the legs to the construction of the panels that make up the seat, back, and armrests.
Century | design Dainelli Studio
Century is a collection that draws inspiration from the English tastes of the ’50s, to which an extremely modern decorative vocabulary is added, made of precious finishes and inlays. The family consists of a sofa, club armchair, coffee table, and dining table, combining different languages through an unconventional look.
The small table uses satin-finished brass tips as a starting point, the fil rouge that stylistically links the Century family. The structure and the feet, covered in precious nubuck, support the spectacular inlaid top. In fact, in the background of dark gray stained veneer wood, the designers have actually added a geometric pattern composed of pear wood inlay, in the white and blue colors of Prussia. The chromatic combinations and the impressive dimensions of this object make it perfect for the most charismatic and sumptuous environments.
To complete the collection, Century dining table continues the theme of peculiar tips in satin brass, on which stands the solid oak structure stained in dark gray. The piece confirms both the refinement of the inlay and the preference for geometric patterns, already revealed in the cocktail table, played this time upon a mahogany base, embellished with an inlaid decoration of diamonds in satin brass, referring once again to the element of the tips.
Agadir | design Ferruccio Laviani
The Agadir small table by Ferruccio Laviani is an object that plays on squared and linear geometries. It is characterized by a soft suede upholstery, covering the entirety of the seat, and small golden pins which outline its borders.
