LUI 5/A Armchair in Blue Leather Matt Black Lacquered

$3,902.68per item

About

Lui 5 armchair, designed by Philippe Bestenheider, stands within the iconic pieces Fratelli Boffi company has presented throughout the years. 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. Outside and inside central seat and back with Nabuk leather and side pentagons with striped fabric. Matt black lacquered finish (tissue colors to be selected). Dimensions: 103 W x 72 D x 123 H, SH 47 cm. This item has been individually handmade by our master craftsmen. Any irregularities or natural blemishes should not be misconstrued as flaws but as integral elements that make each handmade piece unique.

About the Maker

Fratelli Boffi

Fratelli Boffi is an Italian modern and flexible, luxury furniture firm and its history began in 1928. Our company has two strong souls that proceed together: the first one is our own collection, while the second one is our contract division. The latter nowadays cooperates actively with architects and designers from all over the world, developing and manufacturing big projects like hotels, private villas and offices, often furnished completely with special or custom made pieces. Here at Fratelli Boffi technology has become more human, following the idea of the combination of digital and "artisan" humanism, which is Fratelli Boffi's brand philosophy in conjunction with the aesthetics derived from cultura, historical and art inputs.
