Feltri Low Armchair by Gaetano Pesce for Cassina

About the Item

In 1987 Gaetano Pesce designed the amazing armchair Feltri for Cassina. Feltri was created within Cassina’s Research Centre, a place synonymous with experimentation and constructional avant-garde thinking. Here, Gaetano Pesce dedicated time and thought to the design, in the process thinking up a complex new manufacturing process that was later patented by the company. Created entirely from dark brown dense wool felt, the pliable, wrap-around back is all one piece. The lower section, meanwhile, is rigid and sturdy, thanks to being impregnated with a thermosetting resin. The seat is attached to the frame using hemp ties; these also extend around the chair’s upper part. A comfortable red quilt, coupled with polyester wadding, serves to upholster the inner section of the chair. This red and brown low chair is in very good used condition.
