Rare Gianfranco Frattini Cassina Bull Chair in Black Leather and White Boucle

$10,500

About

This Gianfranco Frattini Cassina Bull lounge chair is absolutely stunning. This piece was designed back in 1987 during the start of the Postmodern / Memphis Milano movement. This chair was and still is a piece of trendsetting design to this day--this chair was so ahead of its time, that Cassina did only a super limited 1 year run of these pieces, and thus they are not only rare to this day, but also important pieces of functional, live-able artwork / furniture for the home. The chairs are documented in the famous Italian Gramigna Reportorio Del Design Italiano book. This specific chair has been expertly refinished. The chair still retains its original thick black leather accent upholstery and has been reupholstered everywhere else in a luxurious white / ivory boucle. The chairs' feet and legs have been professionally refinished and re-lacquered so that the chair looks exactly as it would have when it originally left the showroom floor back in 1987. With Postmodernism being hotter now more than ever, this important chair, while post modern and Memphis Milano in styling-- it's so tastefully upholstered that an otherwise very masculine chair has a very soft, heavy feel that effortlessly could flex into any mid century modern, modern or even contemporary environment. We currently have the chair paired in our gallery with a Valdimir Kagan cloud sofa and a Danish modern rosewood coffee table, and not only does it blend very well, it makes a nice masculine statement without going overboard. Noteworthy, this chair has to be one of the most comfortable chairs that's ever been in my gallery. A tryly stunning piece by Gianfranco Frattini.
