Italian craftsmanship

Gianfranco Frattini (1926-2004) was one of the most famous Italian designers and architects. A very skilled and experienced carpenter, he was a student of the well-known architect Gio Ponti. The style of his creations is distinguished for its architectural structure and playful lines.

One of the most creative moments of his career is this armchair which was made in the workshop of Cassina, Italy, from rosewood, in 1959. Frattini’s goal was to help furnish the houses of the time, but giving and a more modern note. The black leather with which it has been lined is in excellent condition, as it has recently been completely restored. The wooden details on the edge of the armchair and the wooden legs come in harmony with the black leather surface, offering us a taste of the luxurious furniture of another era.
