Fratelli Boffi

Lui 5/A Yellow Armchair


Lui 5/A Yellow Armchair - Fratelli Boffi


The fully caned Lui 5/A armchair, designed by Philippe Bestenheider, stands within the iconic pieces Fratelli Boffi has presented throughout the years. A classic in its kind, the wooden chair is characterized by a Vienna straw seat, typical of the early 1900s. Through a revisit and a futuristic look, traditional work techniques are practiced with faithfulness and mastery. The curved and soft shapes of the original model leave room to more simplified and crystalline shapes that multiply in space. The pentagonal shape thereby becomes a unit of measurement of the structure and is repeated obsessively, starting from the leg section and following into the panel construction that create the seat, back and armrests.
