Gianfranco Frattini for Cassina Lounge Chair 877 in Blue Fabric and Teak



Gianfranco Frattini for Cassina, lounge chair model 877, blue fabric and teak, Italy, circa 1959. Sturdy and voluminous lounge chair in blue original fabric. This wingback chair shows nice details and elegant lines. The buttons on the outside of the shell look like brass yet in fact they are made of wood. The seating shows nice vertical lines, which emphasize the high character of this chair and show the high quality of this design. The 'ears' and armrest are beautifully formed. The wooden frame shows great joints and is a nice open contrast to the closed heavy shell.  Please note that the shown photos function as an example. The lounge chair needs to be reupholstered before shipping. Gianfranco Frattini (1926-2004) was an Italian designer and architect. Similarly to many other architects, Frattini became an interior and Industrial designer because he missed the specific furnishings for his buildings. Frattini was a very skilled woodworker and was a student of Gio Ponti. His style can be defined by its architectural structure and playful lines.
